Engineering, IT and operational solutions company Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a $48.6 million task order by the U.S. Air Force Installation Contracting Agency.

The deal was awarded under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center Multi-Award Contract. The award provides research, development and engineering solutions for Pentagon ordnance challenges and supports the development of methodologies and capabilities to enhance AFRL/RWM research, development, test and evaluation capabilities.

To complete the task, Alion’s engineers, scientists and architects will work with university professors to provide research and development of damage mechanisms including reactive materials, formulation and manufacturing of traditional engineering materials and ordnance design to exploit energetics, fuzing and structural components.

“This program expands our 25-year history providing engineering services, research, and prototyping to the munitions community at AFRL and the AFLCMC Air Armaments Directorate,” said Alan Dietrich, senior vice president of Alion. “Our team stands ready to enhance the development of lethal Air Force munitions capabilities as these technologies are transitioned to all phases of development and production.”
