ALION SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Alion Science and Technology delivers agile engineering, IT and operational solutions to strengthen national security. Alion's engineered solutions support smarter decision-making and enhanced readiness in rapidly changing environments. Building on 80 years of R&D experience and innovation, we bring expertise and insight to multiple business areas, including modeling, simulation and training. From serious games, decision support and geospatial data imaging to human-systems integration and wireless spectrum modeling, Alion takes concepts from the lab to the battlespace to help you achieve your mission.
Product and Services
Alion is the prime contractor and lead developer for the Navy Continuous Training Environment, an integrating architecture (i.e., a system of networks, constructive simulation, simulation routing equipment, data translation devices and C4I systems) that forms a virtual range for distributed synthetic training and experimentation.
Alion provides fully interactive training with serious games: the Navigation System Maintenance Trainer used for troubleshooting, maintenance and casualty-control procedures for navigation systems on the DDG-51 and the Virtual Maintenance Performance Aid, offering casualty- and damage-control training on the LCS.
Alion develops deployable, high-fidelity tactical team trainers that incorporate aircraft, vessel or vehicle software for realistic training of Navy P-3 and SH-60 aircrews, LCS-1, LCS-2 and other surface ship crews and land-based warfighters.
Alion produces high-resolution, correlated M&S terrain databases with a full suite of live, virtual and constructive products for experimentation, training and analysis, which are used in a variety of government and commercial off-the shelf simulations and training platforms.
Alion is lead developer for the Navy Training Baseline (NTB) suite of simulation tools, which includes:
• Joint Semi-Automated Forces (JSAF) entity-level simulation generates the Joint service military forces, opposition forces and civilian platforms operating within a synthetic environment.
• Joint Simulation Bus (JBUS) data translator enables interoperability between simulations and simulators and links them with live command and control systems.
• Simulation Aware Router (SAR) distributes simulation across the NCTE via High Level Architecture distribution technology.
• Multi-Host Automated Remote Control and Instrumentation (MARCI) provides control and monitoring of distributed networked simulations from a single workstation.
Alion's Safe Surgery Trainer (SST), (developed with partners UCF, IDEAS and Synensis Health) is the first patient-safety training-game for perioperative teams. SST addresses the root causes of surgical suite mistakes: poor communication and teamwork. Medical personnel interact with scenarios that help to reinforce safety protocols and improve safety outcomes for patients.
