Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a $75 million contract to support research, development, test and evaluation of all Navy Minotaur software platforms for the Naval Air Systems Command and the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane.
Alion was awarded this contract under the Defense Department Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award contract vehicle that allows for competition at the task order level. Work will be performed at various U.S. military organizations.
The company’s knowledge and understanding of Navy’s sensor requirements and systems engineering, data fusion techniques, and artificial intelligence and machine learning expertise will speed up Minotaur capability integration into today’s and future platforms, said Alan Dietrich, Alion senior vice president and general manager.
“Our expertise in developing and integrating ISR, EW, sensors, cyber, and AI to seamlessly address critical national priorities is driven by our desire to advance technology and innovation to respond to rapidly changing needs,” he said.
Alion said it aims to develop the next generation of advanced systems for use in Navy, DOD and Department of Homeland Security platforms. Integration efforts include cybersecurity and information assurance hardening of Minotaur software and integration across multiple sensors including electro-optics, radar, communications, signal intelligence systems, and electronic support measures systems.
