Alion Science and Technology won a three-year, $4.5 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to assess technology that will enable deployed troops to improve how they record and analyze information.
Alion will provide performance evaluations on the Graph Understanding and Analysis for Rapid Detection – Deployed On the Ground (GUARD DOG) program.
Rear Adm. Dick Brooks (USN, Ret.), Alion senior vice president and manager of the distributed simulation group, said Alion will construct research models and develop a variety of testing to rapidly detect issues in technology approaches and algorithms.
“GUARD DOG technology will produce an operationally effective enhancement to the interview process,” he said. “It is designed to give troops the real-time assessments of their surroundings that they need—quickly.”
