Washington, D.C. (Sept. 3, 2020) – The U.S. Army has awarded Alion Science and Technology a $65 million task order with a 60-month period of performance to provide Counter Explosive Hazard Research for the Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD).
“Alion has assembled a strong Artificial Intelligence (AI), Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) and advanced sensor integration team to provide innovative solutions critical for NVESD missions,” said Todd Stirtzinger, Alion’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Advanced Technology Group. “This team will bring robust technical capabilities to develop advanced threat detection solutions for U.S. troops.”
NVESD researches and develops sensor and sensor suite technologies for air and ground intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and target acquisition under adverse battlefield conditions in day and night-time environments. Alion will perform advanced technical, scientific research and analysis, and provide recommendations for NVESD’s Countermine Division. This includes the development of technologies, systems, sensors, components, algorithms, methods, and approaches to detect, identify, and defeat the wide variety of explosive hazards and battlefield obstacles threatening U.S. forces, their platforms, systems, infrastructure, and ability to conduct operations.
This task order was awarded under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center (DoD IAC), Multiple Award Contract (MAC) issued by the Air Force Installation Contracting Agency. This material is based upon work supported by the DoD Information Analysis Center Program Management Office (DoD IAC PMO), sponsored by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) under Contract No. FA807518D0002.
