MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 3 (UPI) -- The U.S. Marine Corps has contracted Alion Science and Technology to enhance decision tools supporting Total Life Cycle Management initiatives.

U.S. company Alion has been contracted to provide the Marine Corps Systems Command with support for Total Life Cycle Management and help maintain the System Operational Effectiveness Decision Support Tool.

Under the $6.3 million deal, Alion will support the Marine Corps Total Life Cycle Systems Management and SOE DST with improved predictive modeling capabilities to enable effective operation of weapon systems. Work on the contract is under the Weapon Systems Technology Information Analysis Center, which is operated by the company.

"Alion will enable the Marine Corps to use Total Life Cycle Systems Management predictive tools to support decisions on manpower, fleet/system readiness, operations and maintenance budgets, and depot requirements on weapon systems," Chris Amos, Alion Technology Solutions Group senior vice president and manager, said in a statement.

"This will lead to system improvements, better retirement and replacement decisions, and a greater accuracy in defining requirements during the acquisition phase."
