Alion wins $24M geospatial battlefield intelligence contract

Alion to improve efficiency and allow geospatial data sharing enterprise-wide

Alion Science and Technology has won a $24 million contract to provide services in support of the U.S. Army’s geospatial battlefield intelligence capabilities.

This contract was won under the Defense Technical Information Center’s Weapon Systems Technology Information Analysis Center contract, which has a period of performance that lasts through Jan. 3, 2016.

Alion will provide geospatial enterprise development, integration and evaluation services to the Army’s Geospatial Enterprise, which serves as the knowledge center for analysis of geospatial information and imagery.

This information and imagery represents physical topographies, environmental elements and geographically referenced activities, including geological information, terrain, road and the effects of time of day or weather, Alion said in a release.

Alion will specifically generate policy and standards that will guide the use of geospatial data throughout the Army, develop geospatial data, support the testing of geospatially-based systems and create geospatial policy documents.

“Alion will help the Army to field geospatial enterprise-enabled systems and capabilities to improve efficiency and allow the sharing of geospatial data enterprise-wide,” said Terri Spoonhour, Group Senior Vice President and Manager of the Distributed Simulation Group.

“These capabilities include such mission-critical applications as increasing battlefield situational awareness for operational forces across the Department of Defense (DoD), improving training and achieving a common operating environment within the Army Geospatial Enterprise.”
