SSC Pacific Awards $24.6 Million
As part of the US Navy’s (USN) mission to support readiness through modernised, relevant learning, the US Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SSC Pacific) awarded Alion Science and Technology a U$24.6 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee, multiple-award contract to provide training services for tactical afloat shipboard, ashore and submarine command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems.
The three-year contract includes two one-year option periods, which, if exercised, could bring the value of this contract to $41.4 million. Work will be performed on ships and land sites worldwide and, if all options are exercised, work will continue through September 2022. This is one of four multiple-award contracts; all awardees will have the opportunity to compete for task orders during the ordering period.
Through this IDIQ contract, Alion will support SSC Pacific with the delivery of integrated and comprehensive Manpower, Personnel and Training (MPT) products and solutions that align to the future vision of USN training. The result will be a learning environment that incorporates adaptive learning, with the ability to integrate emerging technologies such as mobile technology, and modeling and simulation.
“We are a trusted partner on the USN’s enterprise tactical training solution, because we design with both the future and continuity in mind,” Gerry Decker, Alion’s Chief Growth Officer (CGO), explained. “As the USN continues its commitment to readiness through training, we are honored to extend our partnership into an additional area of Sailor training, using a similar rapid prototyping and immersive approach to help deliver unparalleled Classrooms of the Future.”
