Alion to help Navy find new technologies

Alion Science and Technology Corp. will help the Navy identify and explore new and emerging technologies under a $4.3 million task order.

Under the three-year Special Operations Forces Technology Transition (SOF T2) task order, Alion will perform system modeling and simulations, component design review and improvements, company officials said. The task order runs until Sept. 1, 2011.

Additionally, the contractor will test equipment and techniques, implement data collection software, and perform materials studies.

The Weapon Systems Technology Information Analysis Center, which is operated by Alion, will perform the work on behalf of the Joint and Special Operations Program (JSOP) at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane, Ind.

The JSOP Program Management Office is utilizing Alion’s research and simulation expertise in night vision, ammunition, accessory power, material replacement and noise/flash suppression.

The technologies are being developed at commercial, industry, academia and Defense Department research facilities. SOF T2 will focus on facilitating increased communication between the technology developers and end users, Alion officials said.

Subcontractors supporting Alion include Advanced Automation Corp. and The Wexford Group International, a CACI International Inc. company.

Alion Science and Technology, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 31 on Washington Technology’s 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
