Alion Awarded $29 Million Task Order to Provide Electromagnetic Spectrum Technology Analysis for Spectrum Supportability and Broadband Support Headquarters Department of the Army (HQDA) Chief Information Officer (CIO/G6) Army Spectrum Management Office (ASMO)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Alion Science and Technology was awarded a $29 million task order with a 60-month period of performance to provide Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) Technology Analysis for Spectrum Supportability and Broadband Support Headquarters for the Department of the Army (HQDA) Chief Information Officer (CIO/G6) Army Spectrum Management Office (ASMO).
"Spectrum access is critical to the success of the Army's tactical communication requirements where systems depend on interference-free access to defend against national security threats," said Alan Dietrich, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Alion's Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Group. "Alion's spectrum experts will conduct complex analysis and research to apply technological advancements to strengthen EMS for the Army."
Alion will provide the Army G-6 with engineering research and analysis to define and defend the Army's need for access to the EMS to enable the operation of Army capabilities such as the Integrated Tactical Network (ITN) and Long Range Precision Fires (LRPF) capability. Alion will analyze and research efforts to substantiate the Army's need to retain economically valuable spectrum for exclusive or primary military use while addressing methods to improve EMS.
