Alion Science and Technology will help a Defense Information Systems Agency organization explore tools for spectrum management through the company’s position on a potential $137 million contract DISA awarded in May.
Alion is one of eight vendors that will compete for task orders to provide electromagnetic spectrum engineering, technical services, planning, analysis and advocacy support to DISA’s Defense Spectrum Organization under the five-year contract, Alion said Wednesday.
“Alion has more than 50 years of experience providing spectrum engineering support to the Department of Defense, and we’re ready to work with DSO to identify solutions that could mitigate or eliminate radio frequency interference,” noted Sean Pender, Alion senior vice president and manager of the technology solutions group.
The company will also support DSO’s efforts to assess the impact of new spectrum technology on deployed systems and weapons.
Alion assembled a cross-trained team of technical experts that aim to help DSO manage on-the-ground operations, long-range spectrum planning and policy compliance activities.
