Alion Science and Technology Corp. has won three contracts totaling $16.3 million from the Navy Warfare Development Command to support the Joint Semi-Automated Forces Program and other initiatives.
The Lot I contract entails technical support directly tasks related to the JSAF program; the Lot II contract covers non-JSAF tasks, including war game analysis, concepts analysis, and training and experimentation; and the Lot III contract covers information technology work, such as database and Web development support, networking and system administration.
Each one-year contract has four option years. If all options are exercised, the contracts have a potential value totaling $86.6 million.
JSAF is the Navy's core simulation tool used for training and experimentation. The company will perform the work in Newport, R.I.; Norfolk, Va.; San Diego, Calif.; and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
NWDC is responsible for developing Navy operational and warfighting concepts and conducting experiments to test emerging and future technologies.
Alion Science and Technology ranks No. 79
on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
