The company won a $6 million task order from the Army’s soldier program executive office to support the Project Manager Soldier Weapons program.
Weapons systems covered under the project include integrated ammunition, target acquisition and fire control products, said Chris Amos, senior vice president and manager of the technology solutions group.
Alion’s R&D work will include studies and analyses of capabilities, project coordination and guidance for both individual weapons and crew-served weapons.
The company will also provide the Army development engineering, program and acquisition support, logistics and materiel fielding planning.
Alion won the order through the Weapons Systems Technology Information Analysis Center program, which spans through Dec. 2014.
The WSTIAC is one of nine Defense Technical Information Center’s information analysis centers, which house information on technology areas and provide technical expertise in those areas.
