Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a $285 million task order with a 48-month period of performance for Engineering, Integration, Modeling & Simulation, and Cyber Security for Leading Edge Training for the Naval Surface Warfare Center Corona (NSWCCO). This task order is to provide Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E) of new software, technologies, and methods to enable improvements within the Navy Continuous Training Environment (NCTE). Alion will support software engineering, systems integration, and cyber security across a wide spectrum of NCTE engineering projects. Alion was awarded this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle. These DoD IAC MAC task orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the DTIC repository and the Research and Development (R&D) and Science & Technology (S&T) community.
“The Alion NCTE team’s technical understanding, experience, and customer insight ensures continued Fleet training capability development and delivery. We have brought more than 20 years of significant technology innovation for Fleet training with our high-quality software development and engineering team,” said Glenn Goodman, Alion’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Live, Virtual and Constructive Solutions Group. “As the prime developer of NCTE’s Navy Training Baseline (NTB) software and Enterprise Tactical Training Network, we enhance productivity using agile engineering to provide continuous evolution of training technologies and solutions to support Navy, Joint, and Coalition mission partners.”
Over the past 15 years, the NCTE has integrated new capabilities, systems, and training networks for the Fleet and delivered advanced distributed weapon systems training in the execution of Fleet Synthetic Training (FST) and Combatant Commander (COCOM) Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) exercises. The NCTE includes an enterprise network of interconnected nodes located throughout the United States and multiple coalition partner nations with over 90 training sites currently connected to the network. Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Corona Division (NSCWCORDIV), Range Systems Engineering Department, Training Range Systems (RS-20) is responsible for the management of the NCTE and the Navy Combined Tactical Training Ranges (CTTR) which enable the training of Naval Forces throughout the Optimized Fleet Response Plan (OFRP).
