Alion Wins U.S. Air Force Contract Valued at $3M for 93rd Air Ground Operations Wing Support at Moody AFB
Technology Solutions Company to Provide Training and Support for Warfighter
McLean, VA – September 23, 2008 – Alion Science and Technology, an employee-owned technology solutions provider, has been awarded a Logistics, Maintenance and Supply Support (LMSS) contract worth nearly $3 million from the U.S. Air Force to support the 93rd Air Ground Operations Wing (AGOW) at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia.
Under the program, Alion will provide operational management and technical integration in support of the warfighter in the areas of tactical air control and joint air ground operations. Integration of these two areas is the key to successful liaison between the Combat Air Forces and the U.S. Army ground commander's scheme of maneuver. Alion will also ensure operational and tactical training to wing personnel, including equipment and technological advancements in communications, targeting and command and control. The goal is to increase both effectiveness and efficiency for Air Force personnel embedded within U.S. Army units.
“Alion’s experts can provide realistic insights into how to better train and operate in future combat situations,” said Dick Brooks, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Distributed Simulation Group. “Such training is designed to integrate kinetic and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) assets with ground combat operations in order to protect service members’ lives and neutralize insurgent resources.”
The period of performance began August 13, 2008 and runs through August 1, 2013.
The 93rd AGOW consolidates the tactical air control-party and battlefield weather specialties of the 3rd Air Support Operations Group at Fort Hood, TX, the 18th ASOG at Pope AFB, NC, and the specialized force protection capabilities of the 820th Security Forces Group at Moody AFB. The organization provides airmen specializing in ground-combat missions with a single command and control structure.
