Job Description

Position Summary:

Alion Science and Technology supports the Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific (NIWC PAC) and United States Marine Corps (USMC) program for Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Networking-On-The-Move (NOTM).  Under our contract, we enhance C4ISR NOTM systems to keep pace with advancing technology; reduce size, weight, and power; and deal with the transition of satellite communications (SATCOM) bandwidth to a Department of Defense (DoD) governed band. 

Alion has supported NIWC PAC's development and fielding of NOTM systems to enhance deployed USMC tactical SATCOM systems since 2009.  Our analysis, research, and development efforts have resulted in the successful fielding of multiple Ground Combat Vehicles (GVC) and Airborne Point of Presence variants, GCV Staff Vehicle variants, engineering change revisions, the Tactical Modem Kit, and the Tactical Power Supply.  We also supported NIWC Pacific’s collaboration with the Army’s Tactical Network (TN) program to achieve commonality in the design of components for NOTM and TN systems to realize cost savings through economies of scale.

Alion Science and Technology has an immediate opening for a NOTM Technical Liaison to support an existing NIWC PAC contract in research, development and expedited fielding of Command and Control (C2) capabilities on tactical platforms, including Joint Light Tactical Vehicle, Assault Amphibious Vehicle, High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, and tactical fixed and rotary aircraft.
