Navy Awards $48.5 Million Contract to Alion S&T

Alion S&T has won a $48.5 million contract from the US Navy to support the Naval Sea Systems (NAVSEA) Undersea Defensive Warfare Systems Program Office with Anti-Torpedo Torpedo Defensive System (ATTDS) Torpedo Detection, Classification and Localization (TDCL) technology. The contract calls for Alion to develop, implement and test a new torpedo detection system. This project is in partnership with the new anti-torpedo countermeasure technology. Together these two exhibit the continued improvement and integration in Navy fleet system technology. The contract is specified to end in May 2014.

Rear Adm. John J. Waickwicz, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Engineering Technology Center Group said, “As other countries increase their submarine forces, the threat of torpedoes to Navy vessels also increases…Continued at-sea testing is intended to demonstrate that ATTDS will reliably detect and counter incoming torpedo threats, protecting Navy ships and the lives of personnel aboard.”
