Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a $72 million task order with a 60-month period of performance to support the U.S. Army Program Executive Office (PEO) Aviation (AVN), Unmanned Aircraft Systems Project Office (UASPO).
Alion will provide services in support of Endurance unmanned aerial systems (EUAS), Tactical UAS (TUAS), Soldier UAS (SUAS), and Command Control and Effects (C2E).
Alion was awarded this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron.
As part of the task order, Alion will conduct research, analysis, trade studies, and testing. This will provide recommendations and plans for the development, integration, management, and technical support for the UAS programs and other related systems.
This will enable the PEO AVN program managers to develop capability, increase availability, improve reliability, and reduce the support costs of UAS programs.
“Support includes air survivability, reverse engineering, prototype development, cyber security and training as well as whole system modification and integration to successfully deliver products to benefit the UASPO, “said Terri Walker-Spoonhour, Alion’s Senior Vice President of Operations and Acting General Manager of the Cyber and Electronic Warfare Group.
“Our systematic approach achieves speed in planning and execution, allowing us to deliver results quickly and efficiently against urgent operational requirements. We look forward to supporting the Army PEO Aviation’s UASPO.”
