“Alion's spectrum experts will conduct complex analysis and research to apply technological advancements to strengthen EMS for the Army,“ said Alan Dietrich, SVP and GM of Alion's Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Group.
Under the task order, Alion will provide engineering research and analysis to CIO/G6. The company's efforts will help the Army defend access to the EMS, which will support U.S. Army capabilities. Alion will analyze and research efforts to help the service branch retain spectrum for military use and improve EMS.
Alion's work will support the Integrated Tactical Network (ITN) and Long Range Precision Fires (LRPF) capability.
