Alion Science and Technology will furnish the Army's Geospatial Enterprise (AGE) with geospatial development, integration and evaluation services under a $24 million contract award, the company said Jan. 22.
Under the contract, Alion will help AGE field geospatial enterprise-enabled systems and capabilities to improve efficiency and allow the sharing of geospatial data enterprise-wide, the company said. Specifically, the company will assist the Army in developing geospatial data, supporting the testing of geospatial-based systems, and creating geospatial policy documents.
AGE serves as the service's knowledge center for analysis of geospatial information and imagery that represents physical topographies, environmental elements and geographically referenced activities such as geological information, terrain, roads, and the effects of the time of day or weather.
The contract was awarded through the Defense Technical Information Center’s Weapon Systems Technology Information Analysis Center program. The work is expected to be completed by Jan. 3, 2016.
