Alion Wins $24M to Support Army Geospatial Enterprise; Terri Spoonhour Comments

AlionLogoAlion Science and Technology has won a $24 million contract to provide the U.S. Army with geospatial enterprise development, integration and evaluation, the company has announced.

“Alion will help the Army to field geospatial enterprise-enabled systems and capabilities to improve efficiency and allow the sharing of geospatial data enterprise-wide,” said Terri Spoonhour, group senior vice president and manager of the distributed simulation group.

Alion is tasked to generate policy and standards for the use of geospatial data throughout the Army, develop geospatial data, support the testing of geospatially based systems and create geospatial policy documents.

Work will be performed through Jan. 3, 2016 under the Defense Technical Information Center’s weapon systems technology information analysis center contract vehicle.

Spoonhour said Alion will attempt to help the Army increase battlefield situational awareness for operational forces, improve training and achieve a common operating environment within the Army geospatial enterprise as part of the contract.

Alion-operated WSTIAC is one of nine DTIC information analysis centers that provide information and technical expertise on specific technology areas.

DTIC provides DoD personnel and contractors, including researchers, designers and engineers, access to scientific and technical information.
