Alion Science and Technology Corp. won a one-year, $11 million contract option to continue work on the Navy's CVN-77 aircraft carrier.
The McLean, Va., company is providing business and finance, engineering, logistics, integrated warfare systems and program management support for the carrier's new construction, refueling and complex overhaul activities.

Alion has 14 subcontractors working for it on the contract.
Alion, which has 3,700 employees, ranks No. 57
on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list
of the largest federal IT contractors. The 2007 Top 100 list is due out May 14.
