About Us

Based in the Washington, DC, metro area, Alion Science & Technology (Alion) engineers solutions for the United States Department of Defense across our six core capability areas.

Since we aren’t burdened by the organizational conflicts of interest facing large OEMs, we can combine our agile engineering methodology and the best tools on the market to deliver mission success faster and at lower costs. With large business resources and small business responsiveness, it’s no coincidence that our company is named after the proverbial king of the jungle. With their skill and agility, lions are representative of both our people and our business.

Our expertise is unrivaled. We operate with the agility of a small company but the power of a large one. And we work as a team to focus on the mission at hand above all else.

WHERE PURPOSE & EXPERTISE MEET

The solutions we provide to our clients are certainly important, but why and how we do what we do is the heart of who we are. At Alion, we believe that our first responsibility is to support and protect the men and women of the United States Armed Forces who risk their lives to defend us. Everything we do is grounded in that purpose, and we’ve been doing it for more than 80 years.

Our People

Alion’s engineers, technologists, program managers, and other first-class experts are all part of an R&D heritage that continues today. We pair deep functional expertise with real-world domain experience to understand and support military readiness from the operator perspective. Our people are proven creators who bridge invention and action to turn big ideas into real solutions.

  • ADVANCED DEGREES 25%
  • VETERANS 30%
  • SECURITY CLEARANCES 78%
  • NERDS 100%

Alion Excellence

Success for us means, in part, that our credentials are unquestionable. We strive to maintain our ISO 9001:2008 & 17025:2005 certifications as well as a CMMI Level 3 appraisal for both Development and Services. All of our business systems are both DCAA and DCMA approved, and we invite you to see for yourself that our CPAR ratings are excellent.

We are committed to excellence in everything that we do, from our client service and solutions to the experiences of our employees. That’s why we are continually listed as a “Top 50 Technology Employer” in the D.C. area by the Washington Business Journal and repeatedly voted a “Best for Vets Employer” by the Military Times Edge.
