Alion Awarded $51 Million Contract To Provide Air Force Radio Spectrum
Alion Science and Technology announces that it has been awarded a $51M task order to provide radio spectrum studies, measurements, transitions, certification, and licensing for the Air Force Spectrum Management Office (AFSMO). This task order is also being co-sponsored by the Army Research Lab (ARL) and the Department of Defense-Chief Information Office (DoD-CIO). Alion will conduct studies and measurements to identify opportunities for early Advanced Wireless Services-3 (AWS-3) (i.e., 1755-1780 MHz) network deployment and will develop recommendations to enhance DoD’s compliance with AWS-3 transition requirements. The AWS-3 frequency bands are of particular importance to the DoD due to their use at test and training installations for the development of weapons systems and warfighter preparedness.

“These studies will enhance the Government’s ability to complete spectrum relocation, assess any potential sharing arrangements, and complete transitions without compromising operational capability,” said Alan Dietrich, Alion Senior Vice President and General Manager. “Ensuring AF and DoD systems are not compromised during this transition is critical to maintaining Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS) superiority over our adversaries.”

Alion will also assess whether national and international regulatory, policy, legislative proposals, or executive orders negatively impact the Department’s ability to meet national security and mission requirements. Alion will develop recommendations regarding the development of the DoD spectrum operations policies, doctrine, and systems collaboration with key military stakeholders as well as obtain spectrum certification and frequency assignments for all AF spectrum dependent systems and perform technical studies to support Satellites Bi-Lateral meetings and international spectrum meetings.
