Alion to Boost Military ISR Capabilities via $769M Task Order Under OASIS Contract

Alion Science and Technology has secured a $769M task order under the General Services Administration’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services contract to boost the U.S. armed forces’ intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.

The company said Tuesday its work under the Joint Capability Embedded Technology Insertion and Integration task order will focus on the integration of systems and subsystems for remote sensing, ISR data collection, analysis and dissemination, and ISR operations and assessments in general.

Alion will also evaluate system on chip and other embedded technologies that will potentially be installed on ISR, cybersecurity, communications and information assurance platforms for the use of Defense Department and Special Operations Forces soldiers.

Steve Schorer, president and CEO of Alion, said the defense firm’s offerings in remote sensing research and engineering, artificial intelligence and machine learning will contribute to the development of new technologies that will help warfighters access intelligence for combatant command missions.
