Leidos, an engineering, health and national security solutions company, has been awarded the next phase of a 10-year contract with United Power, a rural electric cooperative in Colorado, to implement an additional 20,000 meters supporting the utility's advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) project.

According to Leidos, the second phase is building on a pilot project and is backed by the company's smart grid as a service (SGS) offering.

Leidos says its SGS offering is an integrated hardware and software solution that provides AMI, outage alerts/analysis, remote disconnect/connect capabilities, time of use, and net metering, as well as analytic and predictive capabilities.

"Leidos' SGS solution has allowed United Power to reduce costs, enhance efficiencies and proceed with the AMI deployment," comments United Power CEO Ron Asche. "The analytical capabilities of SGS are enabling us to better understand our infrastructure and proactively address potential problems."

The second phase of the AMI project will be complete by September, Leidos notes.
