"C2IMERA provides Air Force personnel and installations with secure and resilient information capabilities that are integrated, interoperable and adaptable," said Mike Rickels, Leidos senior vice president, Decision Advantage Solutions. "Our collaboration with the Air Force in maturing C2IMERA's command and control capability now spans a decade. We look forward to this next step in scaling and evolving the advanced C2IMERA tool to enhance the Air Force's operational advantage."

Under the contract, Leidos will continue to develop C2IMERA and work to expand the system to include all USAF installations, associated forward operating locations and contingency locations for command and control and emergency management requirements. This scaling is intended to incorporate an expanded user base, including emergency response services, local governments and host nations.

C2IMERA is a Leidos-developed, government-owned software application system that provides an integrated composite picture of wing and unit resources for planning, force employment, emergency management, C2 monitoring and reporting. The USAF and other stakeholders use C2IMERA for decision advantage in day-to-day operations and across the conflict continuum to prevent, protect against, mitigate, respond to and recover installations from physical hazards or threats.

Leidos developed C2IMERA at the company's software factories. In 2018, it became the first externally developed programme to be integrated into Kessel Run. Leidos has been responsible for C2IMERA's development along with its predecessor product, Unit Command and Control (UC2), since 2014.

Leidos currently supports approximately 25,000 C2IMERA users across 90 locations worldwide.
