The Department of Defense has awarded Alion Science and Technology a $2.8 million task order to provide support for an automated and secured system developed by Alion and used by the DoD’s Operations Security personnel. The system is used to analyze, collect and collaborate on threats, critical information and vulnerabilities.
Under the contract, Alion will provide support to DoD personnel for the OPSEC’s OSCAR system. The system allows officers to better adjudge vulnerability and risk.
Rear Admiral Dick Brooks (USN retired), Senior VP and manager of the Distributed Simulation Group at Alion, said “We believe that through the development and deployment of OSCAR, Alion has helped the OPSEC community take a major step forward. OSCAR enables OPSEC managers to identify critical information, analyze threats, assess vulnerabilities, analyze risks and apply countermeasures. We are supporting the DoD by providing a framework to track security implementation based on risk reduction.”
