Alion Awarded U.S. Army Geospatial Center Contract Valued at $6M to Produce Digital Terrain and Geospatial Data

MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the Army, total awareness of a geographical area is crucial to both commanders and troops in the field. To support this need, Alion Science and Technology, an employee-owned technology solutions company, will provide the U.S. Army Geospatial Center (AGC) with geospatial expertise under a $6 million contract.

“Validating AGC’s technical solutions can greatly improve the quality of maps and other geographic information used by warfighters in the field. It can also help commanders plan and operate decisively”

The AGC is the Army’s knowledge center for geospatial information, which can encompass details that include terrain, roads, geological information, presence of water, and the effects of the time of day or weather. Alion’s work involves producing digital terrain and geospatial datasets, including validating the Army’s geospatial enterprise-enabled systems through experimentation, systems engineering and systems implementation plans.

“Validating AGC’s technical solutions can greatly improve the quality of maps and other geographic information used by warfighters in the field. It can also help commanders plan and operate decisively,” said Rear Adm. Richard E. Brooks (USN, Ret.), Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Distributed Simulation Group. “Additionally, Alion’s work will be instrumental in helping the Army to build its geospatial intelligence policy and strategy.”

The work was awarded as a task order under the Defense Technical Information Center’s WSTIAC contract with the period of performance through Sept. 1, 2014.

WSTIAC, operated by Alion, is one of the 10 Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) Information Analysis Centers (IACs). The IACs house libraries of information that are focused on specific technology areas, in addition to providing technical expertise in these areas. DTIC is headquartered at Fort Belvoir, VA, and serves the Department of Defense (DoD) by providing access to scientific and technical information for DoD personnel and contractors, including researchers, designers and engineers.

WSTIAC’s work is sponsored by the DTIC, ATTN: DTIC-I, 8725 John J. Kingman Rd., Ste. 0944, Fort Belvoir, VA 22060-6218.
