Alion Science and Technology has opened a facility in Maryland to offer technology platforms and support services to Naval Air Systems Command.

The inauguration event for Alion's Prototyping, Integration and Acquisition Center featured technology demonstrations from engineers and subject matter experts, the company said Monday.

Featured offerings include a big data platform, accelerated hardware systems and a sensor-augmented virtual artificial intelligence sandbox.

Alan Dietrich, senior vice president for Alion's intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance group, said the company seeks to address a demand for ISR sensors, platform integration, analytics, automation and force protection platforms through footprint expansion at Patuxent River.

"We started with about 400 sq. ft. of space 3 years ago. Since then we expanded to 5,284 sq. ft. to house our program and administrative support staff and added a 20,000 sq. ft. integration facility to support current NAVAIR requirements," Dietrich added.
