The agreement covers Leidos Engineering’s smart grid capabilities, including its AMI managed solution, which integrates the Honeywell-Elster meter data management platform, field meters, modules and collectors.

The suite of smart grid solutions combined with Leidos industry expertise ensures utilities get the greatest value from their smart grid efforts.
ECG provides strategic and technical services to communities with utility operations and has been deeply involved in AMI technology. ECG advises its members as to which AMI solution is the best fit, has the best capabilities based on the community needs and is most supportable by the utility. ECG will work with Leidos to ensure member utilities are aware of the benefits available through the Leidos smart grid capabilities.
Leidos provides the installation, configuration, integration with key systems, cybersecurity audit services, and a fiscal review tied to a business case, ensuring project benefits align with the costs. Leidos then manages the solution around the clock as an extension of the utility for overall operation and technology support. With Leidos providing the management, utilities can focus on quality delivery and customer support.
