MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Alion Science and Technology reports it has been contracted to support the U.S. Army Rapid Equipping Force in meeting urgent operational energy needs.

The award is a task order under the Defense Technical Information Center's Weapon Systems Technology Information Analysis Center contract, and carries a value of $45 million.

Alion said the order authorizes it to assess potential technology solutions for fielded forces. Its services will include research and development, engineering and technical evaluation and analysis for the REF.

"Our team will support REF by conducting assessments in combat environments, placing the latest technologies into warfighters' hands and supporting a top Army initiative," said Chris Amos, Alion's senior vice president and manager of the Technology Solutions Group. "Alion's operational energy work will provide savings to the government in areas such as fuel convoys and logistics footprints, and ultimately improve warfighter safety and readiness."

The task order is expected to run through June of 2015.
