Alion Awarded $73 Million Task Order to Provide Joint Training Synthetic Environment Research and Development
WASHINGTON, Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The U.S. Navy has awarded Alion Science and Technology a $73 million task order with a 60-month period of performance to provide Joint Training Synthetic Environment (JTSE) Research and Development (R&D) for Joint Staff J7, Deputy Director Joint Training (JS J7 DDJT) Environment Architecture Division (EAD). 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 (TOs) 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 R&D and S&T community.
“We are dedicated to our continued customer partnership to develop joint virtual environments to prepare for Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2),” said Katie Selbe, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Alion’s Cyber Network Solutions Group. “Alion has a deep understanding of the JTSE program and its requirements. Our team has been at the forefront of developing Joint Synthetic Training Environments for over 20 years and provides a seamless transition for on-going capability development.”
The JTSE is one of the critical enablers that supports the delivery of trained, capable, and interoperable Joint Forces. The scope of this effort includes providing a full range of application design, development, and integration efforts to modernize the technical architecture supporting joint forces training exercises. The architecture must enable the use of current technologies to assist with information management as well as an evolutionary transition from the Joint, Live, Virtual and Constructive (JLVC) Federation to a data-centric, web-based single digital environment that supports collaborative exercise planning and execution.
