HII’s subsidiary, Alion Science and Technology, won a $1.4 billion task order under its Mission Technologies division for Joint Network Engineering and Emerging Operations.
The work falls under the General Services Administration’s ASTRO contract vehicle and has a 1-year base period and four 1-year options.
“This award illustrates our strength in the management and execution of U.S. government programs and growth as a premier service-solutions provider in all domains,” said Chris Kastner, HII president and CEO. “We are pleased to continue this mission-critical work together with the National Security Innovation Network and its mission partners. HII looks forward to leveraging new technologies and advancing national security priorities to protect peace and freedom around the world.”
The scope of work is similar to the company’s past support of the Joint Capability Embedded Technology Insertion and Integration task order. Under J-NEEO, HII will provide the National Security Innovation Network and its mission partners with emerging technologies in intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems, and cybersecurity, communications and information assurance.
“We are honored and proud to support J-NEEO mission partners across all U.S. Armed Forces services branches, U.S. Combatant Commands and Department of Defense agencies to field innovative solutions and deploy leading-edge technologies to support the warfighter,” said Andy Green, executive vice president of HII and president of HII’s Mission Technologies division. “We believe our team’s deep knowledge base and technical skills will accelerate research and development activities and position our mission partners to rapidly deploy and inject mission capability across the globe. We’re ready.”
