With active programs in support of both the U.S. Army and the USMC, Alion provides full-lifecycle engineering and integration services focused on the systems-of-systems “move” and “shoot” capabilities of ground combat systems.
BACKING BOOTS ON THE GROUND
At Alion, our engineers develop and integrate solutions that help joint warfighters win decisively as part of multi-domain combat operations. We support a range of needs— from the individual level; to major land combat weapon system platforms; to conventional, semi-autonomous, and autonomous armament, munitions, and mobility systems. For more than four decades, we have worked with the DoD to enhance and develop ground combat systems that reduce size, weight, power consumption, and cost (SWAP-C) while enhancing lethality and survivability.
Through development and integration of superior maneuverability, firepower, and defensive protection solutions, we are partnering with the U.S. military to make sure the nation has the modern tools and weapons to win today and in the battles that will come.
Alion supports the United States Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) in developing vehicle fire prevention and suppression technologies aimed at reducing vehicle damage and occupant injury. We plan and direct onsite support of live-fire test at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, perform subsequent data analysis, and draft reports for briefs and publications. In addition, our engineers also support the development and testing of new agents to replace Halon, which is being phased out due to ozone layer concerns. As part of this effort, we continually work with suppliers in support of vehicle fire system modernization and instrumentation across a broad range of ground combat systems.
