Alion Science and Technology, a global engineering, R&D, IT and operational solutions company, has been awarded a contract valued at up to $542 million to provide technical and management expertise to support the U.S. Navy’s submarine force. The contract, issued by the Naval Sea Systems Command, covers a full range of services to the Team Submarine Program Offices, including engineering, logistics, program management and business and financial management.
Team Submarine unifies submarine-related organizations across the Navy to focus on strategies and solutions for undersea warfare research, development and acquisition.
“The U.S. undersea forces are crucial to the nation’s security strategy,” said Rod Riddick, Alion Senior Vice President. “Alion’s experts have been supporting the submarine force for decades, so we fully understand the environment in which they operate. This means we can implement solutions that can make the undersea fleet faster, quieter, safer and more powerful, while meeting the Navy’s financial goals.”
