Navy Awards Alion $285M Contract to Support Engineering Integration, Cybersecurity for NSWCCO Training
Alion Science and Technology has received a Navy task order worth $285 million for engineering, integration, model and simulation and cybersecurity services for leading-edge training.
The contract will support the Naval Surface Warfare Center’s Corona division for a total of four years.
The deal will provide research, development, test and evaluation of new software, technologies and methods to enable improvements within the Navy Continuous Training Environment, Alion said.
Under the agreement, the company will support activities related to software engineering, cybersecurity and systems integration across various engineering projects within the NCTE.
Over the last 15 years, the NCTE has integrated new capabilities, training networks and systems for the Navy, delivering advanced distributed weapon systems training in the execution of fleet synthetic training and combatant commander live, virtual and constructive exercises, Alion explained.
The training environment includes a network of interconnected nodes across the U.S. and throughout multiple coalition partner nations. Currently, more than 90 training sites are connected to the network.
As the prime developer of the NCTE’s Navy Training Baseline software and Enterprise Tactical Training Network, Alion works to enhance productivity by using agile engineering to provide “continuous evolution of training technologies and solutions” in support of Navy, joint and coalition mission partners, said Glenn Goodman, the senior vice president and general manager of the company’s Live, Virtual and Constructive Solutions Group.
Glenn noted that the Alion NCTE team’s technical experience, understanding and customer insight will ensure continued fleet training capability development and delivery for NSWCCO.
The recent NCTE contract was awarded under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award contract vehicle.
