With more than 80 years of experience engineering science and technology solutions to support national security, Alion supports clients with big ideas and real solutions.
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.
