WASHINGTON, June 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Alion Science and Technology announces today that it has been awarded a $39M U.S. Air Force (USAF), Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) task order to support the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR), and Special Operations Force (SOF) Directorate. The AFLCMC provides ISR/SOF with state-of-the-art technical support for every fighter, bomber and cargo aircraft; training system; remotely piloted aircraft; missile and aeronautical weapons currently in the USAF inventory as well as for a number of foreign military allies. Alion will provide engineering, airworthiness, system security and assurance, and risk management analyses in developing, implementing, and executing product logistics, sustainment and acquisition across the portfolio of ISR aeronautical weapon systems.
"Maintaining fleet readiness is critical for our military to succeed. Alion has a high level of expertise in engineering, avionics, airworthiness and cyber with the right team in place to meet the needs of this program," said Todd Stirtzinger, Alion Senior Vice President and General Manager. "Alion's risk management, logistics analysis, and cost analysis tools and methodologies will excel the government's ability to implement programs to track equipment reliability, plan for risk mitigation and sustain lifecycle management of aircraft. Our agile methodologies will allow for quick execution of new requirements."
Many systems components are experiencing Diminishing Manufacturing Sources and Material Shortages (DMSMS) in addition to RMQSI issues due to the age of the system and its components. These sustainment issues drive the need to implement engineering, analysis and testing programs identifying approaches for reliability and supportability improvements to aircraft systems that will lead to increased equipment reliability and a reduction in support costs.
This task order has a 60-month period of performance and was awarded under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center (DoD IAC), Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DS TAT), Multiple Award Contract issued by the Air Force Installation Contracting Agency. This material is based upon work supported by the DoD Information Analysis Center Program Management Office (DoD IAC PMO), sponsored by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) under Contract No. FA807518D0002.
