MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Acquisition activities for the F-35 Lightning II and other systems by the U.S. Air Force will receive lifecycle support from Alion Science and Technology.

The award comes as a modification to an earlier Secretary of the Air Force Technical and Analytical Support contract. It is worth $183 million over three years.

"This contract brings a cost-effective and easily tailored workforce to support the full lifecycle of Air Force acquisition at the headquarters level, the F-35 Lightning II Joint Program Office and various other acquisition-related organizations," said Rob Hirt, Alion senior vice president and manager of the Technology, Engineering and Operational Solutions Sector.

"Alion's SAFTAS team will also suggest business re-engineering changes to streamline acquisition oversight activities."

Alion's support services will range from database and enterprise architecture development to modeling and simulation and test and evaluation. In addition to supporting the F-35 acquisition program, work will support Air Force related to aircraft such as the C-17 and F-22, the Global Hawk and the Predator unmanned aerial vehicles.
