Alion-Operated Centers Publish Special Edition Journal on Power and Energy Technologies and Initiatives

Technology Solutions Company Helps Promote Awareness of Department of Defense Efforts to Improve Energy Security

McLean, Va. – August 25, 2009 – The Department of Defense (DoD) is undertaking the enormous and challenging task of improving energy security through myriad power and energy initiatives. To chronicle some of the technology advancements, ongoing programs, and successful efforts aimed at providing the military with a reliable and secure power and energy supply, two Information Analysis Centers (IACs) collaboratively published: “Powering the Future Force: New Power & Energy Technologies for the Warfighter.”

The Advanced Materials, Manufacturing, and Testing Information Analysis Center (AMMTIAC) and the Weapon Systems Technology Information Analysis Center (WSTIAC), both operated by Alion Science and Technology – an employee-owned technology solutions provider – worked together to publish this special edition journal. With a forward by Alan Shaffer, Executive Director of the DoD’s Energy Security Task Force, this special edition publication highlights topics ranging from wearable power to expeditionary power systems to novel power sources for advanced munitions.

“Energy is a force multiplier – and a limitation. Energy efficiency increases maneuverability, agility, and makes our forces more expeditionary. However, our new systems require ever increasing energy, during a time when getting fuel to forward locations is considered an operation, with vulnerable supply lines requiring additional security forces,” Mr. Shaffer states in the publication’s forward.

Originally distributed to IAC subscribers as a 92-page printed journal, the special edition publication is now available as a free download and features additional content not available in the print version. The table of contents and the expanded digital edition is available at: http://ammtiac.alionscience.com/pdf/AQV4N1.html

“For the Department to succeed in responding to the energy challenge, access to the latest information on energy research is essential,” said Terry Heston, the Defense Technical Information Center’s IAC Program Manager. “DoD IACs are a vital resource in this endeavor. Powering the Future Force is a significant contribution and important first step in the IAC Program’s engagement in addressing this topic.”

The publication was sponsored by the Defense Technical Information Center, ATTN: DTIC-I, 8725 John J. Kingman Rd., Ste 0944, Fort Belvoir, VA 22060-6218. DTIC serves the DoD community as the largest central resource for DoD and government-funded scientific, technical, engineering and business-related information available today. For more than 60 years, DTIC has provided the warfighter and researchers, scientists, engineers, laboratories and universities timely access to more than 2 million publications covering more than 250 subject areas. Its mission supports the nation’s warfighter.
