Under CEO Roger Krone, Leidos has fashioned itself as a different kind of defense contractor–not a hardware-centric builder of major weapons, but a software-centric product of the information age. The strategy has seemed to work well, and now the Pentagon is providing an oversized opportunity that seems well-suited to the company’s capabilities. It is called the Joint All-Domain Command and Control system, or JADC2, and it looks to be the mother of all military networking projects. If it succeeds, it will transform how the joint force conducts war, but to make it work a different approach to sharing information and making decisions is needed. Leidos believes its cultural attributes and tech experience make it a good candidate to help organize and implement JADC2. I have written a commentary for Forbes here.
