Air Force Taps Alion to Provide Engineering Services for C-5M Fleet
Alion Science and Technology is set to provide support services for the C-5M Super Galaxy fleet managed by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center under the terms of a five-year, $64 million task order.
The task calls for reliability, integrity and maintainability engineering. Work is aimed at resolving deficiencies found in C-5M aircraft systems, subsystems and component parts, Alion said.
Terri Walker-Spoonhour, senior vice president of operations and acting general manager of the cyber and electronic warfare group at Alion, said in a statement that a team of C-5 subject matter experts will be deployed to address sustainment engineering challenges.
Walker-Spoonhour, a member of the Potomac Officers Club, touted Alion’s past experience with the C-5 platform, including providing support to the Aircraft Wiring and Avionics Integrity Program.
Services provided under the task will support the AFLCMC’s C-5M Super Galaxy Division, which handles maintenance, management and technical and logistical requirements of the C-5M fleet.
The task was issued under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award contract vehicle.
Alion has been accumulating defense contracts as of late.
The McLean, Virginia-based company was recently awarded an $87 million task to help the Navy identify what technologies it needs to ensure that its non-nuclear vessels are future-ready.
The Navy also awarded Alion a $285 million task to provide engineering, integration, model and simulation and cybersecurity services for leading-edge training. The task is aimed at enabling improvements within the Navy Continuous Training Environment.
