CLOUD & NETWORK ARCHITECTURES
For more than 25 years, Alion has developed and refined a software development capability that delivers robust software applications and translates the edge of commercial technical innovation for our DoD customers.
THE COMPLETE SOFTWARE PACKAGE
Whether you’re looking for web services, Software as a Service (Saas), terrain generation, serious games, or something more, our software engineers are ready to work with you and deliver the right solution backed by actionable metrics. In line with industry and domain best practices, we incorporate an Agile software development lifecycle with emphasis on proven Scrum methods to engineer and validate our solutions, while minimizing cyber risk through our fully accredited processes.
OUR SOFTWARE ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS
Bringing our expertise together with your mission goals, we work with clients to refine and evaluate the requirements that will drive the final software solution that we deliver.
Our experts research and test available technology from across the market to determine the best possible solution for your needs. And if we don’t find the right thing, we’ll create it!
DESIGN & PROTOTYPING
Based on each client’s specific requirements and the results of our research and testing, we design and prototype software across a wide range of modern technologies and languages.
DEVELOPMENT & OPERATIONS
We don’t stop at developing your software product. We help integrate it into your environment and provide ongoing operations and maintenance, so it continues to perform as planned.
Our software testing experts evaluate the functionality, security, and overall effectiveness of our products before delivery. We integrate and test early on operationally representative systems for the best quality assurance!
JOINT SEMI-AUTOMATED FORCES (JSAF)
As the core simulation application used for Navy synthetic and classroom training, JSAF is currently deployed in Navy Training Centers (TTG’s, ATG’s), Joint Staff J7, NAVAIR trainers, Office of Naval Research (ONR), Australian Defense, Royal Australian Navy, Canadian Defense, and throughout the United Kingdom Royal Navy. This custom application provides realistic tactical-level interactions to support operational decision-making in joint training activities.
JOINT SIMULATION BUS (JBUS)
JBUS reduces the effort and risk associated with gateway development by providing a common framework for data translation between disparate components, systems, and architectures. It is built on an extensible, plug-in-based public architecture and provides a low-cost and low barrier-to-entry solution that meets current and emerging architectural needs.
JBUS is currently deployed in Navy Training Centers (TTG’s, ATG’s), Joint Staff J7, Army PEOSTRI, USAF DMOC/DMON, NAVAIR Trainers, and Navy Trainers. Rapid integration and configuration in new environments are hallmarks of JBUS installation.
REAL-TIME AUTOMATED VISUALIZATION ENVIRONMENT (RAVE)
RAVE enables whole-world training using a commercial game engine as a baseline, providing live streaming, full-motion video, and imagery products for use during synthetic training. We overcame the traditional game engine limitations of small terrain play boxes, curved earth, and native simulation interoperability to develop this tool in support of integrated LVC training activities.
RAVE is currently used to support Navy training in exercises scaling more than 150,000 platforms and is deployed in integrated phase Navy Fleet Synthetic Training, COCOM exercises (Talisman Saber, Austere Challenge, Bold Alligator), and Fleet Battle Experiments.
