WASHINGTON. Alion Science and Technology has won a $64 million task order with a 60-month period of performance for C-5M Super Galaxy Reliability, Integrity, Maintainability, and Engineering for the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC)/WLS.

Alion claims it was awarded this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center's (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle. These DoD IAC MAC task orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force's 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron.

According to officials, C-5M Super Galaxy Division (WLS) of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC), a sub-unit of the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), is located at Robins Air Force Base (AFB), GA and has worldwide management and engineering responsibility for the C-5M Super Galaxy (C-5M) fleet.

While the primary focus of this TO is to identify, address, and resolve field service revealed deficiencies of the C-5M aircraft systems, subsystems, and component parts, similar work may be performed for other weapon systems, especially where common technical issues occur, so that innovative solutions can be shared across multiple weapon systems.
