WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 16, 2021) – Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a $18 million task order with a 60-month period of performance for Spectrum Management Research and Analysis for Air Force (AF) Spectrum Management Office (AFSMO). Work to be performed includes technical and analytical spectrum research, analysis, and assessments pertaining to national and international spectrum issues to meet the AFSMO mission of ensuring the AF’s global access to the spectrum. Alion was awarded this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle.

“Alion will continue to support this key customer with a team of recognized subject matter experts in spectrum research, analysis and management. We will continue to excel the mission of AFSMO by developing tools and providing advanced technologies to address spectrum issues critical to AF spectrum-dependent weapons systems and platforms,” said Alan Dietrich, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Alion’s ISR Group.

Alion will perform scientific and technical support related to AFSMO spectrum management issues for presentation to spectrum bodies within international organizations including the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The reallocation of spectrum from Federal Government use to commercial services may have a major impact on the research, development, operations, analysis, and support of AF spectrum-dependent weapons systems and platforms such as precision guided munitions, F-22, Joint Strike Fighter, and unmanned aerial systems such as Raven, Predator, and Global Hawk. Alion will also provide strategic planning, integrated spectrum plans, and long-term strategies addressing current and future AF spectrum access requirements and provide scientific and technical support for AFSMO policy development as well as international, national, civil, and military (North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), allied, and coalition) forums.
