August 5, 2014

Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a $11.4 millionDefense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) contract to develop an integrated set of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosives (CBRNE) modeling and simulation tools to support Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) mission operational support, analysis and training.

In its release, the Company said that under the contract, it will make enhancements to the Force-on-Force Evaluation and Analysis of Key Performance Parameters (FREAK) toolset by modernizing and managing code and software development, software production and distribution. FREAK is a solution that supports training, security analysis and investment decision support related to weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The system can accurately model the most challenging WMD situations.

"FREAK provides operational support to CBRNE missions as well as training in wide area search missions and analysis on physical security and personnel recovery," said Terri Spoonhour, Alion Senior Vice President and Distributed Simulation Group Manager. "Alion's years of Joint Semi-Automated Forces (JSAF) code development and configuration management experience, coupled with a vast understanding of the Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) mission space, are the keys to our ability to enhance the FREAK architecture. Ultimately, this means better training support for our warfighters and faster responses to real-world threats."

Alion Science and Technology delivers engineering, IT and operational solutions to strengthen national security and drive business results.
