Karl Nebbia, former head of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration‘s spectrum management office, has joined Alion Science and Technology to lead the firm’s wireless spectrum services unit.

He led NTIA’s spectrum management office between 2007 and 2014 as associate administrator and joins the company as it pushes to build its spectrum support market footprint, Alion said Friday.
