Alion Science and Technology has received an indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity contract from the Mid Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center (MARMC) in Norfolk, Virginia, US.

The new $63m contract is aimed at supporting the US Navy in order to upgrade and extend the service life of the mechanical and electronics systems for submarines.

Alion Integration Solutions Group manager Greg Bryant said: "We are committed to helping the Navy prepare for potential threats to national security, which includes supporting MARMC's plan to maintain and modernise the systems on its fleet of submarines.

"Our experienced talent pool of submariners is well-versed in predictive and condition-based maintenance tools that are more effective in anticipating the need for assistance."

Under the contract, Alion will supply engineering, analytical, logistics, and technical support for the submarine's mechanical and electronics systems at MARMC.

"Our experienced talent pool of submariners is well-versed in predictive and condition-based maintenance tools."

The company will deliver equipment and system expertise for a vast array of needs, including troubleshooting, repair, assessment, analysis, and inspection.

Moreover, Alion will be responsible for supporting root cause identification, maintenance training, and long-term problem resolutions related to the equipment.

In September, Alion secured a contract from the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane for the delivery of its surveillance and reconnaissance systems division (SRSD).

Under this $49m contract, Alion is responsible for the supply of rapid design, engineering, fabrication, and testing of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) components and systems.
