Alion Science and Technology will upgrade a modeling and simulation toolset used in operational support, training and analysis for the Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction program under a new $11.4 million contract.
The Defense Threat Reduction Agency contract covers code and software development and software production and distribution on the Force-on-Force Evaluation and Analysis of Key Performance Parameters solution, Alion said Tuesday.
“FREAK provides operational support to CBRNE [chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosives] missions as well as training in wide area search missions and analysis on physical security and personnel recovery,” said Terri Spoonhour, Alion senior vice president and distributed simulation group manager.
According to Spoonhour, the company has previously worked on configuration management and software development for the Joint Semi-Automated Forces.
“Ultimately, this means better training support for our warfighters and faster responses to real-world threat,” she said regarding the program.
