Alion Wins $15M Navy Contract

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

Alion Science and Technology, an employee-owned technology solutions company, has won a $15m contract to support the Naval Operational Logistics Support Center (NOLSC) as the center integrates and modernizes its logistics support systems that support deployable units in the Navy and Coast Guard.

Under the three-year logistics management services contract, Alion will assist NOLSC with logistics planning, modeling and simulation, concept generation and development, and manning, personnel and training analysis. Alion also will conduct the front end assessment for the Littoral Combat Ship, which will serve as the basis for all manning, personnel and training decisions affecting end strengths and budgets.

The logistics support systems deployed by NOLSC provide data feeds to modeling and simulation software products for distribution optimization programs and ship loading. 

“Alion will help NOLSC realize a reduction in ownership costs and time efficiencies and help reduce manpower shipboard levels,” said Greg Bryant, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Integration Solutions Group. “The work conducted under this contract will allow the Navy to take advantage of modeling and simulation products to meet the diverse logistics requirements being imposed on the Navy from all of the services.”

The contract runs from March 1, 2010 to February 28, 2013.
