Alion to Help NAVSEA Identify Future-Ready Ship Technology
Alion Science and Technology has been awarded an $87 million task order to help the Navy identify what technologies it needs to ensure that its non-nuclear vessels are future-ready.
Under the terms of the five-year task order, Alion and primary subcontractor Serco will provide technical analysis services to the Naval Sea Systems Command deputy commander for surface warfare, or SEA 21.
Alion said it will analyze the weapons, hull mechanical and electrical systems, logistics, and service delivery systems on SEA 21’s combatant and non-combatant ships.
The contract was awarded under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award contract vehicle, which was set up to expand the Defense Technical Information Center repository and support the greater research and development community.
While the contract is primarily focused on the hull, mechanical and electrical systems, Alion said it also expects to work on command and control systems, which include steering gears, switchboards, machinery control systems, bridge and navigation systems and deck equipment.
Work will also involve system engineering, systems and platforms integration, analysis, test, evaluation, weapon systems validation, safety validation, configuration management, logistics and technology insertion into complex naval warfare environment, according to the company.
Glenn Goodman, senior vice president and general manager of Alion’s live, virtual and constructive solutions group, said the Alion-Serco team is well-equipped to increase efficiencies and introduce process improvements to the SEA 21 program.
“Alion will continue to provide uninterrupted technical services to NAVSEA 21 to support Navy ship maintenance and modernization for in-service ships throughout their lifecycle,” Goodman said.
