Alion secures $71M AFRL space protection and response task order

The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Space Vehicles Directorate (RV) awarded Alion Science and Technology a $71 million task order, the McLean, VA-based company announced October 5. The task order has a 48-month period of performance to support the AFRL/RV by developing and transitioning high pay-off space, information, and Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) related technologies that support national security.

“Alion has a deep understanding of national security space threats and the associated drivers for shaping future space architectures. Our expertise in conducting physics-based modeling, simulation, and assessments for multi-domain analytics for space superiority and space control capabilities, operations, and architecture assures national security space missions support the warfighters.” said Todd Stirtzinger, Alion Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Advanced Technology Group. “These will be the drivers for shaping future architectures, to include multi-domain dependencies and executing the assessment models for AFRL/RV.”

Alion will provide research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) to develop innovative technology solutions to advance space mission capabilities in a multi-domain, joint, and coalition conflict. This effort includes synthesizing in-depth knowledge of threats to the space enterprise, assessing current and future situational awareness capabilities, and analyzing indication and warning thresholds, timelines, protection and defense response options to mitigate those threats.

This task order was awarded under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center Multi-Award Contract Multiple Award Contract (DoD IAC MAC), issued by the 774 Enterprise Sourcing Squadron (774 ESS)/ Plans/Programs (PKP). This material is based upon work supported by the DoD IAC Program Management Office (PMO), sponsored by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) under Contract No. FA807518D0002.
