Alion to support Air Force information analysis center

Work will focus on refinement of electronic warfare capabilities

Alion Science and Technology Corp. will assist an Air Force organization that provides technical data and and engineering services for the development of weapons systems and associated capabilities under a $13.5 million contract.

Under the contract, Alion will furnish research, technical analysis and testing services to the Weapon Systems Technology Information Analysis Center in support of electronic warfare capability planning and development, Defense Department officials said May 5.

The Rome, N.Y., center provides scientists, engineers and program managers with assistance related to target identification, weapons systems development, irregular warfare, training systems and many other capabilities.

The contracting activity is the 55th Contracting Squadron located at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb.

Alion, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 39 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
