Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a two-year, $29 million task order by the U.S. Air Force to support the Joint Electromagnetic Warfare Center (JEWC) to provide Joint Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) Information, Analysis and Fusion (JEMSIAF) solutions, the company announced on Wednesday.
“Due to the rapid development of commercial and military electromagnetic spectrum dependent systems, and the increasing dependence of military operations use of the EMS, this pivotal program enables authoritative technical and operational information required to achieve EMS superiority,” said Todd Stirtzinger, Alion senior vice president and general manager.
The Joint Electromagnetic Warfare Center (JEWC), a subordinate component of United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM), has provided engineering analytics, modeling, simulation, and assessments that support the planning and execution of Joint Force Commander (JFC) electronic warfare operations.
Under the task order, Alion will provide scientific and engineering research, analysis,and development to accelerate the Government’s capability to provide the authoritative, validated, and verified data, information, and modeling required for JFC elements and service organizations.
Alion’s work will enable these organizations to to achieve EMS superiority and EMS control and to plan, direct, monitor and assess EMS operations across all operational domains, including air, ground, maritime, space, and cyber, as well as operational functions, such as intelligence, logistics, targeting, communications and information operations.
In addition, Alion will provide technical, analytical, engineering and operational level research, analysis, assessment and evaluation to build the framework for model object development using current EMS user community concepts and standards.
The contract was awarded under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center Multiple Award Contract (IAC MAC) issued by the Air Force Installation Contracting Center. The DoD IAC program operates as a part of the Defense Technical Information Center and provides technical data management and research support for DoD and federal government users.
The program aims to drive innovation and technological developments by enhancing collaboration through integrated scientific and technical information development and dissemination.
“This is a key win for our team and a testament to Alion’s strength in ISR, EW, and cyber, and our ability to bring these capabilities together rapidly to address our customer’s joint, multi-domain missions in support of our national defense,” added Stirtzinger.
