Alion on Team that Earned Army Modeling and Simulation Award

To recognize outstanding efforts involving modeling and simulation (M&S), the Army M&S Office honors both an individual and a team in several categories. The theme for this year’s awards was “M&S Enabling the Army in Transition.” Alion was part of the Army team awarded the “Acquisition Team Army M&S Award” for 2012.

Alion employee-owners supporting the Army Geospatial Center (AGC) were key contributors, providing geospatial data, simulation terrain databases and models to enhance the Army’s Network Integrated Evaluation (NIE) events.

The team’s efforts provided the foundation for the integration of live, virtual, and constructive simulations into NIE events and contributed significantly to the success of the Army’s premier effort to integrate and mature the Army's tactical network.
