WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 26, 2021) – Alion Science and Technology has been awarded an $87 million task order with a 60-month period of performance provide technical analysis for Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Deputy Commander for Surface Warfare (SEA 21). Serco, Inc. will serve as a primary subcontractor on this contract. SEA 21 requires forward thinking, innovative, and cohesive technical research and analyses grounded in systems theory to best support the directorate’s responsibility to satisfy both current and future throughput needs for the U.S. Navy Fleet. Alion was awarded this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle. These DoD IAC MAC task orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the DTIC repository and the Research and Development (R&D) and Science & Technology (S&T) community.
“The Alion/Serco team has an exceptional understanding of the SEA21 program and the Integrated Data Environment (IDE) requirements. With the knowledge and experience this team brings, we are able to develop new tools and solutions that are specifically designed to increase efficiencies and drive process improvements,” said Glenn Goodman, Alion’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Live, Virtual and Constructive Solutions Group. “Alion will continue to provide uninterrupted technical services to NAVSEA 21 to support Navy ship maintenance and modernization for in-service ships throughout their lifecycle for continued warfighting capability to the Fleet.”
Under this task order, Alion will provide SEA 21 with research-based technological analysis and deliverables for its weapon, HM&E, logistic, and service delivery systems onboard surface non-nuclear naval vessels to include combatant and non-combatant ships. This analysis will enable Navy and Marine Corps warfighters to appropriately plan and integrate optimal technologies into emerging and fielded warfighting assets ensuring mission relevancy throughout each ship’s service life. Specific research and analysis domains shall include system engineering; integration of systems and platforms; analysis, test, and evaluation; certification of weapon systems and subsystems; safety; configuration management; logistics; and technology insertion into complex Naval warfare environments. Issues being addressed are primarily related to Hull, Mechanical, and Electrical systems but may include Command and Control systems. (e.g. Steering Gear, Switchboards, Machinery Control Systems, Bridge and Navigation systems, and Deck equipment. Ship Classes include DDG, CG, LPD, LSD, MCM, etc.).
