In a $6 million engineering research and development task order, Alion Science and Technology, a global engineering, R&D, IT and operational solutions company, will help support the Army’s Project Manager Soldier Weapons (PM SW) program in its mandate to develop, produce, and procure current and next-generation weapons systems and technologies to give soldiers a military advantage.
“This task order allows us to develop and rapidly deliver accelerated solutions for weapons systems, including integrated ammunition and associated target acquisition and fire-control products,” said Senior Vice President and Manager of Alion’s Technology Solutions Group Chris Amos. “This mission-critical work will support warfighter needs, giving our troops an edge in the battlespace.”
The task order, awarded through the Weapons Systems Technology Information Analysis Center (WSTIAC), has a period of performance through December 2014. WSTIAC, is operated by Alion, and is one of nine Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) Information Analysis Centers (IACs).
