Alion to Support Navy Surface Ship Life-cycle under $192M Contract
Engineering and Operational Solutions Firm Will Help Ensure Readiness of Non-nuclear Surface Fleet
McLean, VA – May 6, 2015 – With U.S. Navy ships staying in service for extended periods, ensuring they are ready to meet national security goals requires continual efforts. In response to this need, Alion Science and Technology, a global engineering, technology and operational solutions company, has been awarded a contract valued at up to $192 million by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Deputy Commander for Surface Warfare (SEA 21).
Alion’s technical, program, business and financial management experts will help ensure that all non-nuclear surface ships (with the exception of the Littoral Combat Ships) are maintained and modernized during their service life. Additionally, Alion will support training systems that will familiarize crews with systems throughout each ship.
“Every surface ship, whether recently commissioned or currently in-service, must be able to meet the country’s national security objectives, whether that means responding to threats or providing humanitarian support,” explained Rod Riddick, Alion Executive Vice President. “Alion is poised to help make certain that the fleet is fully capable of supporting the Navy’s missions from the day each ship is delivered through its service life.”
The contract, which has one base year and two option years, and two award terms was awarded as a task order under the Navy’s Seaport-E contract.
