Nuclear detection technology evaluation project

Alion Science And Technology : 14 January, 2009  (Application Story)
Defence Threat Reduction Agency places order on Alion to evaluate available technology for detection of nuclear threats
Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a Defence Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) task order with a value of $21.8 million to support the agency's mission of safeguarding the United States and its allies from weapons of mass destruction.

Alion and its partners will examine nuclear detection technologies that can lead to more robust capabilities in that area. Alion's experts will formulate work plans, monitor research and assess progress and provide a performance assessment of "game-changing" technologies with high-risk, high-reward profiles.

This follow-on task order comes from the Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) DTRA Arms Control contract that Alion was awarded in February 2002.

"The Alion team will play a vital role in assisting the government in the identification and transition of critical technologies in support of defence against weapons of mass destruction," said Sue Archer, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Operational Solutions Group. "Our work will help DTRA with formulating long-range research projects and uncovering those with the greatest potential benefits to reduce the threats posed by nuclear weapons."

Alion's partners are the University of Michigan, Kansas State University, Radiation Monitoring Devices, Proportional Technology, Orbis and Ausgar. The period of performance runs until December 17, 2011.
