Alion Wins $15M Navy Contract to Validate Logistics Data and Test Logistics Concepts




Estimated Cost:


Technology Solutions Company to Help Naval Operational Logistics Support Center NOLSC Analyze Systems to Lower Costs and Reduce Shipboard Manpower Alion Science and Technology, an employee-owned technology solutions company, has won a $15 million contract to support the Naval Operational Logistics Support Center NOLSC as the center integrates and modernizes its logistics support systems that support deployable units in the Navy and Coast Guard. Under the three-year logistics management services contract, Alion will assist NOLSC with logistics planning, modeling and simulation, concept generation and development, and manning, personnel and training analysis. Alion also will conduct the front end assessment for the Littoral Combat Ship, which will serve as the basis for all manning, personnel and training decisions affecting end strengths and budgets. The logistics support systems deployed by NOLSC provide data feeds to modeling and simulation software products for distribution optimization programs and ship loading. These systems are vital to the Navy’s efforts to efficiently integrate the Navy’s logistics support into a joint environment. Alion will help NOLSC realize a reduction in ownership costs and time efficiencies and help reduce manpower shipboard levels, said Greg Bryant, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Integration Solutions Group. The work conducted under this contract will allow the Navy to take advantage of modeling and simulation products to meet the diverse logistics requirements being imposed on the Navy from all of the services. The contract runs from March 1, 2010 to February 28, 2013. NOLSC analyzes, conceives and integrates new logistics models and technologies for implementation in deployment scenarios. Developing and standardizing these processes supports the optimization of lift resources, DoD asset visibility requirements and the integration of Navy warfighting capabilities into current Joint constructs. NOLSC works with other Navy and Joint agencies to develop the vision, strategy, integration training and management concepts to execute transportation/distribution optimization and strategic mobility training across the Navy and Coast Guard.
