May 14, 2019 (WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Alion Science and Technology, headquartered in McLean, Va., is excited to announce the creation of a System Sustainment Center supporting the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) – Crane Division. By combining its current facilities footprint in Odon, IN, Alion has created a 57,000 sq. ft. campus that provides research, development, production, and sustainment of advanced weapons systems, soldier-carried systems, Electronic Warfare (EW), and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems.

Alion’s WestGate facilities recently obtained ISO:9001 and AS9100 certifications and house a series of laboratories for design and integration of hardware, firmware and software for secure RADAR, EW, Communications and Processing Systems. Alion recently added a complete prototyping/fabrication capability and an on-site light electronics and cable assembly laboratory to reduce schedule dependencies. Alion is also adapting new technology, like Artificial Intelligence, to solve challenging problems including cyber-resilient mission processors and autonomous system payloads.

Dino Cencetti, Vice President of ISR Systems and Sensors Operations for Alion said, “We are proud to offer this innovative one-stop System Sustainment Center to support NSWC – Crane. This provides our fighting forces with a competitive edge by bringing all these capabilities together to create a center that can rapidly respond to today’s needs and invest in the future of NSWC – Crane.” Cencetti continued, “Alion has been supporting NSWC for over ten years providing new equipment design, redesign for obsolescence and technology insertion bringing new technology to the warfighter.
