Up-to-the-minute geospatial data — topographical information, terrain, roads and the effects of the weather and time of day — is a key element of battlefield intelligence.

To help the Army better manage, analyze, and share geospatial data, Alion’s team worked onsite at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Army Geospatial Center (AGC) to build numerous terrain databases for AGC, some in the excess of 1,000-geocells. In addition, our team supported the development of the Ground-Warfighter Geospatial Model to enable dissimilar military systems to work together more easily and accurately.

Alion played a significant role in the Army’s Network Integration Evaluation (NIE), hosting the NIE Geospatial Integrated Product Team and providing the foundation for integrating Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) simulations. Plus, the NIE team, a mix of government and Alion employees, earned the Army Modeling and Simulation Office Award for Acquisition in 2012.
