MODERNIZATION & SUSTAINMENT
Obsolescence Management

Markets change and manufacturers come and go. Alion provides sustainment technology to make sure you have what you need to accomplish your mission, no matter how the environment evolves.

INNOVATIVE AND TIMELY SUPPORT

Obsolescence — diminishing manufacturing sources and material shortages (DMSMS) — is a common occurrence that impacts DoD and national security equipment. Lack of supply due to aging fielded systems, OEMs who go out of business, new technology, differing variants within a single system, restricted access to raw materials, and more poses a serious threat to operational readiness.

Our experts use deep and machine learning to identify unresolved, mission-degrading obsolescence issues and provide viable functional solutions that are both mission and cost effective. We design hardware and software to replace obsolete components, and our supply chain experts can identify and qualify alternative commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions or suppliers. No matter the challenge, we stand ready to provide innovative and timely solutions to keep you moving.

FEATURED WORK

POLYPROPYLENE FIBER STANDARDIZATION

Alion collaborated with the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) and Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Research and Development to characterize and document quality assurance parameters for a polypropylene fiber to be used in vehicle armor. This standardization effort led to a newly created military specification, MIL-DTL-32549, and, among other benefits, increases the robustness of the industrial base by adding an additional qualified product to the DoD supplier base.
