June 18, 2019 (WASHINGTON, DC) – Alion Science and Technology, headquartered in McLean, VA, has been awarded a Task Order totaling $75M to support the Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Pacific. The U.S. Air Force Installation Contracting Agency (AFICA) awarded this contract to Alion under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DS TAT) multi-award contract.
The contract supports the technical focus area of Combat Vehicle Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) On-the-Move (OTM) Systems for the Joint Warfighter. The Alion team will support the US Marine Corps and Army programs for C4ISR-OTM at NIWC Pacific to ensure interoperability and commonality of functions between systems and upgrades. This includes the advancement of joint and coalition force capabilities by helping to provide OTM satellite communications technology that gives weapon system platforms on the battlefield reliable, worldwide connectivity to the JIE.
Alion will provide technical expertise to develop operational concepts for SATCOM-OTM across multiple weapon system platforms, to include tactical vehicles. Focus will be on systems engineering and providing the technology expertise required to evaluate, design and test, and implement advanced hardware and software components for the C4ISR-OTM. We will also identify technologies and capabilities to fill operational OTM communications gaps through rapid prototyping.
“Alion has supported this customer since 2009. Being able to provide continued access to the team that built the NOTM system and the OEMs for the individual components allows for uninterrupted advancement of C4ISR technologies,” said Tim Lawrence, Alion Senior Vice President. “Our knowledge and agile approach allows us to quickly respond to new and emerging C4ISR requirements.”
