WASHINGTON. Alion Science and Technology has won a $18 million task order with a 60-month period of performance for Spectrum Management Research and Analysis for Air Force (AF) Spectrum Management Office (AFSMO).

According to the company, work to be performed includes technical and analytical spectrum research, analysis, and assessments pertaining to national and international spectrum issues to meet the AFSMO mission of ensuring the AF's global access to the spectrum. 

Alion claims it will perform scientific and technical support related to AFSMO spectrum management issues for presentation to spectrum bodies within international organizations including the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

Officials also claim that the reallocation of spectrum from Federal Government use to commercial services may have a major impact on the research, development, operations, analysis, and support of AF spectrum-dependent weapons systems and platforms such as precision guided munitions, F-22, Joint Strike Fighter, and unmanned aerial systems.
