US-based defence con­trac­tor Alion Science and Technology has secured a $248m navy con­tract for the devel­op­ment of advanced war­rior train­ing.

The com­pa­ny noted that the con­tract is for the Navy Continuous Training Environment (NCTE), Integrating Architecture Development.

Alion Science and Technology senior vice-pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er Katie Selbe said: “Alion is ded­i­cat­ed to deliv­er­ing cut­ting-edge soft­ware, sim­u­la­tions, net­work­ing and vir­tu­al tech­nol­o­gy that sup­ports the navy’s tac­ti­cal train­ing envi­ron­ment.

“We are hon­oured to con­tin­ue to pro­vide world-class solu­tions to our mis­sion part­ners. It is imper­a­tive that live and syn­thet­ic train­ing envi­ron­ments excel at pro­vid­ing real-world mis­sion rehearsal sup­port for our warfight­ers.”

The com­pa­ny will pro­vide test and engi­neer­ing ser­vices in addi­tion to research and devel­op­ment.

These ser­vices will help to devel­op and inte­grate new and improved train­ing archi­tec­ture and sys­tems for advanced warfight­er train­ing at var­i­ous fleet warfight­ing and train­ing com­mands.

For advanced warfight­er train­ing, Alion’s focus will be on the devel­op­ment and inte­gra­tion of the NCTE Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) archi­tec­ture and sys­tems.

The DoD Information Analysis Center Program Management Office (DoD IAC PMO) pro­vid­ed mate­r­i­al for the project, which is spon­sored by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC).

The company’s con­tract has a per­for­mance period of 48 months.

Operating as a part of Defense Technical Information Center, the DoD IAC pro­gramme pro­vides tech­ni­cal data man­age­ment and research sup­port for DoD and fed­er­al gov­ern­ment users.

It also serves the DoD Science & Technology (S&T) to drive tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ments.

In October 2018, Alion won a mul­ti­ple-award con­tract (MAC) worth $794m from the US Department of Navy, Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Newport, Rhode Island for the devel­op­ment, con­struc­tion and sup­port of the unmanned under­sea vehi­cle family of sys­tems.
