With more than 200 spectrum engineers and policy experts, we are anticipating the future— optimizing system performance within the complex electromagnetic environment, where more and more systems depend on interference-free spectrum access.
With more than 65 years of experience across the lifecycle of spectrum-dependent systems, we are a proven leader in spectrum management and electromagnetic engineering. Our experts help the Armed Forces, the Department of Commerce, the intelligence community, other government agencies, and private companies optimize use of the electromagnetic environment, including resolving spectrum-sharing issues associated with the introduction of new radiating systems into already heavily congested co-platform, test, and contested environments.

EMERGING SPECTRUM TECHNOLOGY
The Alion Spectrum Operations Center in Maryland includes a spectrum-sharing laboratory, which focuses on algorithm development and RF signals processing. Lab personnel work cooperatively with industry, researchers, and academia to design and test new technologies — such as FPGAs and systems-on-a-chip, MIMO, advanced sensors, and machine learning — that can increase access, improve spectrum awareness, and advance spectrum sharing.
