Alion Science and Technology has been awarded a five-year, $145 million contract from the US Naval Sea Systems Command to support the navy's DDG 51 shipbuilding programme, the company announced on 8 August.

Under the contract the company will provide services including ship production planning and engineering; systems engineering; combat systems test engineering; and post delivery planning. Engineering services, configuration and data management, and logistic support are also included.

The work will assist in ensuring current production and planned ships cost-effectively meet mission requirements.

Alion has been a large contributor to the DDG 51 design and flight upgrade efforts since the programme’s inception, and we are excited to continue supporting the team.'
