Defense extends Alion management deal for weapons center

The Defense Department's Weapons Systems Information Analysis Center has extended a $60.7 million contract with Alion Science and Technology to manage and operate the center.

Under the contract extension, which will run from Oct. 1, 2005, through Sept. 20, 2008, the McLean, Va., company will also offer subject matter experts to DOD users. The contact was originally awarded to Alion in September 1999.

The center offers information and analysis of weapons systems technologies to DOD research and acquisition communities. Alion develops and assesses the technologies, and has developed DOD-standard software tools, according to a company release.

'By helping identify the best technologies for the job, and performing field and laboratory work to verify performance, our people at WSIAC are helping make weapons and delivery systems more effective and reliable while minimizing cost,' said Chris Amos, Alion group senior vice president and manager of the Technology Solutions Group.
