MCLEAN, Va., April 23 (UPI) -- The U.S. Air Force has contracted Alion Science and Technology to continue providing its modeling and simulation services supporting operational readiness.
U.S. company Alion was awarded the follow-on contract to continue providing the Air Force Readiness Office with its Web-based Predictive Readiness Assessment System service.
Under the $8.5 million deal, Alion will supply its PRAS modeling and simulation service designed to provide reports and assessments on Air Force readiness levels. Officials said the PRAS reports are aimed at providing Air Force decision-makers with mission-critical information on how to best allocate resources.
"Alion's team of managers, analysts and software developers have successfully, over the past six years, developed PRAS from concept to a mature, fully working (Secret Internet Protocol Router Network) Web-based system," Dick Brooks, Alion senior vice president and Distributed Simulation Group manager, said in a statement.
"PRAS can now provide senior Air Force leadership with an integrated view of present and future readiness."
