Human Performance Evaluation Support At US Coast Guard

: 03 May, 2010  (Application Story)
Alion will work with the US Coast Guard in assessing human factors on the use of weapons systems
Alion Science and Technology has won a $9.5 million contract to support the US Coast Guard Human Resources/Systems Integration Office (CG-1B3) as it analyzes human performance factors on the engineering design and development of ship, boat, aircraft, and C4IT acquisitions.

Under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, Alion will provide major systems acquisition process support, project identification, assistance during the various acquisition phases, and facilitation and documentation support. CG-1B3 is the Coast Guard’s technical authority for Human Systems Integration (HSI) and the office partners with the Acquisitions Directorate (CG-9), program sponsors, technical authorities, and other stakeholders.

“Alion has been an integral part of this critical mission since its inception,” said Greg Bryant, Alion Senior Vice President and Manager of the Integration Solutions Group. “We look forward to continuing to support the Coast Guard as it integrates human performance criteria, including manpower, personnel, training, human factors engineering and safety and health hazards, consistently throughout the acquisition process.”

The contract runs for one base year with four, one-year options. Subcontractors include DSCI, Harkcon, Novonics and BMT D&P.

Human systems integration takes a human-centric approach to system design and acquisition to reduce lifecycle costs and optimize system performance. Alion’s work will help the Coast Guard measure performance and improve its ships, boats, aircraft, and C4IT systems.

The Coast Guard describes HSI as a synthesis between system engineering and behavioural science, adding that the discipline is to design a system according to the roles, capabilities and limitations of the humans who must use the technologies.
