Alion Science and Technology will support the U.S. Army’s Ground Vehicle Support Center mission with technology solutions after receiving a $34 million task under the Defense Systems Technical Area Tasks contract sponsored by the Army Material Command’s Defense Technical Information Center.
Under the 36-month contract, Alion will develop, integrate and sustain technology solutions for the Army’s manned and unmanned ground vehicles. The task includes ground vehicle power and mobility, survivability and lethality, command and control, and laboratory, facility, and operations improvements.
And according to Alion Senior Vice President Tim Lawrence, this isn’t the company’s first time working on the Army’s military ground vehicle research and development center. It has been doing so since 1999, through subject matter expertise, engineering talent and technical solution development for engineering problems.
“We look forward to our continued partnership with this team to provide solutions and technologies for their success,’’ Lawrence said.
