Having electronic health records vs. previous hard copy records will go a long way in saving money, time, and lives.

After a two year search, the Defense Department awarded a $4.3 billion contract to Leidos, Inc.

Previously known as Science Applications International Corporation, Leidos is an American company headquartered in Reston, Virginia. The company provides scientific, engineering, systems integration, and technical services.

The new contract will cover more than 9.5 million Defense Department beneficiaries and the more than 205,000 care professionals who provide them with support.

Dr. Jonathan Woodson, assistant secretary of defense for health affairs, called electronic health records “a critical enabler for supporting and maintaining medical readiness” around the world. The new system is global, and must operate in remote places like Afghanistan, in addition to DoD’s 55 hospitals and more than 600 clinics, according to Woodson.

“Even apart from the wartime requirements, the patients we serve are frequently on the move, as are our caregivers, so it is very important to have a highly integrated system that is portable to serve the needs wherever they may be required,” he said.

The DoD and the VA are interoperable now, said Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics Frank Kendall, but this contract ensures it will continue by including future software upgrades.

Training is also included in the contract, he said.

“The trick … in getting a business system fielded isn’t about the product you’re buying, it’s about the training, the preparation of your people, it’s about minimizing the changes to the software that you’re buying,” Kendall said. “We’ve done a lot of work to ensure that our users … are prepared to take on this product and use it.”

The next big hurdle is testing the software to ensure it is secure and does what is needed. This will be carries out at eight locations in the Pacific Northwest late next year. Ultimately, the system will be fielded at more than 1,000 locations worldwide. The cost over 18 years was placed at $11 billion, but new figures suggest the ultimate cost will be below $9 billion, Kendall said.

Leidos, Inc Wins DoD Contract: VAMBOA: By Debbie Gregory

 

military connection: ffvBy Debbie Gregory.

The Future Fighting Vehicle (FFV) program may not be totally down for the count. The Army has awarded two contracts, worth more than $28 million each, to BAE Systems and General Dynamics Land Systems to develop design concepts for the FFV.

The effort is meant to determine whether the Army will produce an entirely new vehicle or a modern armed and armored personnel carrier to replace the Army’s Bradley Fighting Vehicle.

The Bradley, which the Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV) program was to replace, has been in service since 1981, and is expected to remain in the Army inventory perhaps for decades in the future.

In October, Brig. Gen. David Bassett, commander PEO Ground Combat Systems, said the FFV program was largely a science-and-technology development effort, meant to help the Army explore its options while it pursues various engineering-change proposals for its existing armored vehicles.

The Army is asking BAE Systems and General Dynamics to study technologies, costs, and risks against future infantry fighting vehicle requirements for a FFV system.[Native Advertisement]

From their GCV work, BAE Systems engineers will try to recycle integrated hybrid-electric propulsion and mobility subsystems, automotive test rigs, and hybrid-electric integrated propulsion subsystems.

Due to the use of a hybrid-electric propulsion, the company will design and implement calibration maps for all components within their hybrid systems to test component efficiencies within integrated propulsion systems.

The Army’s other vehicle efforts include its pursuit of a Humvee replacement, the joint light tactical vehicle, and M113 infantry carrier replacement, the armored multipurpose vehicle, along with upgrades to the Abrams, Stryker and Paladin.

Currently in the development stage is a light vehicle that’s designed to enable airborne troops to move quickly to an objective after they’ve parachuted in. On May 28, Army Chief of Staff Ray Odierno said the service is exploring the needs for a vehicle that provides mobile protected firepower, an infantry fighting vehicle and a light tank, using 20 collaborative war-fighting challenges to identify capability gaps — with near-, mid- and long-term solutions.

VAMBOA: US Army Awards Contracts for FFV Designs: By Debbie Gregory

F35The Department of Defense (DOD) contract watch for building F-35 fighter jets for the U.S. military has received a lot of publicity over the past several years. So far, the F-35 program has generated over $1 billion in contracts to companies involved with various components of the project.

On August 13, 2014, the Lockheed-Martin Corporation was given an additional $233 million to work on flight-training and maintenance simulators for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program. The contract increase calls for production of 19 training simulators and nearly 70 technical support systems. The bulk of the money and the work for this contract will be done at Lockheed’s facilities in and around Orlando, Florida.

Lockheed’s Orlando training systems unit manages the F-35 flight training center at Eglin AFB. This division of the company also produces automated logistics computers for the stealth fighter jets. More than 500 jobs in Orlando are tied to the F-35 work, including weapons-targeting systems produced by Lockheed’s missiles group.

The F-35 program has survived scrapping from the DOD through frequent schedule delays, cost overruns and technical problems. One of the most notable incidents was an engine fire on June 23rd that temporarily halted the project. The DOD acknowledged that Lockheed has taken a number of measures to cut costs and address performance issues over the past year.

Last month, Lockheed and its F-35 partners unveiled a plan to reduce costs on each individual aircraft by the end of the decade. The plan calls for spending $170 million through 2016 to shave costs from each F-35 to $80 million, down from $100 million.

But with a projected overall price of $400 billion, the F-35 is still on track to become the most expensive U.S. weapons system in history, with 2,400 planes built for the U.S. military and its allies.
