The Reston, Va.-based firm said Wednesday it will demonstrate its aviation maintenance management information system at this year's conference, which will take place from Sept. 16 to 18 at the Gaylord National Convention Center.

Other products to be showcased include another platform for command and control incident management and emergency response, an automated installation security system, a geostationary satellite called Commercially Hosted Infrared Payload and the Foxhound Sensor Platform designed to support the U.S. Special Operations Command.

Gerry Fasano, president of Leidos' defense group, said the event enables the company to demonstrate its offerings that seek to address the U.S. Air Force's challenges in C2, navigation, force protection, mission readiness and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

As part of the event, Leidos employees will also facilitate discussions on topics such as ISR support, resilient navigation, collaborative autonomy, consolidated data analytics and cyber analysis.
