SYSTEMS ENGINEERING & INTEGRATION

Artificial Intelligence

Alion is applying artificial intelligence (Ai) to help the DoD and other government agencies augment human performance and realize massive efficiencies in developing and operating current and future systems.

LEADING APPLIED Ai FOR DEFENSE

At Alion, we are helping America define and create the next generation of smart defense and intelligence systems. Combining the power of cloud computing and edge devices with commercial and open source software, we have integrated Ai into every corner of our business.

No stranger to technological revolutions, our scientists are conceiving novel applications of Ai across our core capabilities and beyond— infusing legacy platforms with intelligence, while designing new systems around Ai from the ground up. Using Ai tools and techniques, our teams help clients develop more effectively, build more robustly, manage more precisely, make decisions more quickly, and sustain more efficiently. We envision seamless human-Ai teams as the standard in future operations, and we are helping build the foundations to make that possible.

OUR ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SOLUTIONS

MACHINE LEARNING

We develop, test, and integrate leading-edge machine learning algorithms to optimize and accelerate the nation’s mission-critical systems and platforms.

DEEP LEARNING

We train deep neural networks to model complex systems, make predictions, and augment decisions— all with exceptional speed, security, and accuracy.

AUTONOMY

We design persistent, autonomous platform solutions that can navigate and operate while intelligently compensating for changes in conditions.

HUMAN-Ai TEAMING

We combine reinforcement learning with tailored interfaces to accelerate course of action (CoA) development across platforms to drive advantage.

FEATURED WORK

ISR SENSING & CONTROL SYSTEMS

Modern sensors capture data in such high volumes that even the most advanced traditional processing techniques are overwhelmed. We are augmenting ISR sensing and control systems with machine and deep learning to help national security clients collect and synthesize data faster and more accurately, so they can make more informed command and control decisions.

CLOUD COMPUTING ARCHITECTURES

Accurate models and predictions need data to perform well— and the more, the better. We are leaders in multi-level secure cloud computing architecture development, helping the intelligence community and others store, access, and learn from data to enhance simulation fidelity, train Ai models, and create other critical information products.

LVC TRAINING

Training at scale has traditionally been expensive and has involved heavy manual tuning. We are enhancing live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training and simulation with machine learning to test and calibrate remote system elements, while using deep learning to automate content creation. The result is the development of training and rehearsal products that deliver unprecedented speed and quality.

MODERNIZATION & SUSTAINMENT

Naval assets are a major investment for the DoD, and high readiness maximizes that investment. We are applying machine learning to predictive modeling and design to ensure operational readiness through fast, intelligent updating and maintenance. We are also designing autonomous vessel prototypes to advance the state of the art in efficient force projection.

MEET OUR BUSINESS LEADERS

Todd Borkey, Chief Technology Officer
Alion CTO Todd Borkey is leading the organization’s Ai strategy and rapidly growing the Alion Ai team to revolutionize customer systems, platforms, and operations. During his career as a systems engineer, program manager, and technology executive, Todd has been at the forefront of several technology and market inflection points. He played a leading role in the first implementation of undersea optical communications, TDMA wireless devices, airborne remote sensors, and now Ai. Todd is currently developing Alion’s eco-system of Ai partners, while helping our clients embrace and deploy these exciting new technologies.

Chris Milroy, Technical Director, Artificial Intelligence 
Chris Milroy provides technical leadership to the company’s growing applied Ai business. He came to Alion from Engility, where he served as chief scientist of their Ai laboratory and worked as a technical fellow designing and developing advanced analytic, machine learning, and Ai solutions across defense, intelligence, law enforcement, and other federal business areas. Chris began his national security career as an FBI analyst in the FBI Laboratory’s Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center (TEDAC) and served as an FBI representative to the White House subcommittee drafting Presidential Policy Directive 17. After leaving government service, Chris was lead methodologist for FourWinds, Ltd., where he consulted for senior government executives on their complex data challenges.
