Knowledge is everything when it comes to geospatial information, and the U.S. Army Geospatial Center serves as the force’s hub of knowledge in this field.
John Sloan, manager of Alion’s modeling and simulation division that supports warfighting, told ExecutiveBiz that Alion’s work involves building systems off of the grid and testing it in the environment.
“We’ll be doing a lot of database” work for the AGC, Sloan said. Under the WSTIAC contract vehicle, Sloan said, the company can propose specific tasks.
A larger task Alion is charged with is taking complex geospatial systems and making them work seamlessly with each other. Glen Quesenberry, Alion’s lead software design engineer, indicated this is a gradual process.
“We’re starting out small,” Quesenberry said. “We’ll grow toward marrying the systems.”
