WASHINGTON, July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Alion Science and Technology announces today that it has been awarded a $75M Fighter/Bomber Enterprise task order to support the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center's (AFLCMC) Fighters & Advanced Aircraft Directorate and Bombers Directorate (AFLCMC/WA and AFLCMC/WB, respectively). AFLCMC/WA and AFLCMC/WB provide state-of-the-art technical support for every U.S. Air Force (USAF) fighter and bomber weapon system currently in the USAF inventory supporting U.S. joint services and several foreign military partners. Alion will define, develop, and provide analysis for acquisition, sustainment, cyber security, and resiliency strategies for researching, developing, producing, fielding, and sustaining major weapon systems and subsystems, as well as modifying existing weapon systems and subsystems, to meet the needs of the USAF, U.S. joint services, and coalition partners.
"Alion brings a high-level of weapon systems logistics, acquisitions, and cybersecurity expertise coupled with a strong systems engineering approach to this program, which enables us to quickly address current requirements and focus on developing future solutions," said Todd Stirtzinger, Alion's Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Advanced Technology Group. "Alion's history of avionics, airworthiness, and cyber experience allows us to further the mission success of our customers."
Work under this task order will contribute to the achievement of AFLCMC/WA and AFLCMC/WB missions and facilitate their roles supporting the U.S. Air Force, additional U.S. Armed Services, and international customers/partners. Deliverables will further define, develop and inform the Air Force's capability development and acquisition planning pertaining to weapon system RDT&E, procurement, fielding, and sustainment efforts. The results and findings of this effort will provide a valuable source of information for future application to the Fighters & Advanced Aircraft and Bombers Directorates portfolio programs as well as to other Air Force, Navy, Army, and DoD programs.
