U.S. Army has awarded Alion Science and Technology a $41 million task order with a 60-month period to support new airdrop technologies and to identify opportunities for technology transfer and integration with existing airdrop systems for the Aerial Delivery Analysis Combat Capabilities Development Command Soldier Center.
Alion won this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s, or DoD IAC, multiple-award contract vehicle. These DoD IAC MAC task orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the DTIC repository and the R&D and science and technology community.
Airborne force projection and aerial delivery methods are vital to maintaining pace with frequently emerging and evolving threats, said Todd Stirtzinger, Alion senior vice president and general manager of the Advanced Technology Group.
“Alion’s team is proud to provide innovative research, development and engineering to produce technologies for the Army,” he added. “Our goal is to always empower and protect the Warfighter who protects our nation and enable more effective delivery of humanitarian efforts.”
Alion is to research, analyze, assess and develop new airdrop technologies as well as identify technical approaches and opportunities for technology transfer and integration with existing airdrop systems.
