Alliant - Why Use Engility on Alliant?

Engility provides engineering and technology support services to our customers throughout the acquisition and sustainment lifecycle of their specific programs. We support C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance), mission-specific systems, software, hardware, and platforms in a holistic manner. Our service offerings include systems engineering and integration, modeling and simulation, test and evaluation, software engineering and sustainment, hardware engineering and sustainment, and upgrade and modernization. These services reflect our customers’ requirements for specialized technical advice across the technology lifecycle.

Our capabilities in information technology (IT) are primarily focused on project management, software development and integration, hardware and network implementation, and network and information security. We view IT as a primary enabler of our customers’ missions, operations, and back-office business processes. Our areas of expertise include:

  • Software Development and Integration. Utilizing our proven software development methodology, expertise in service-oriented architecture (SOA), and COTS integration processes, we support several large scale enterprise system implementations.
  • Hardware and Network Implementation. We provide installation and integration services for COTS and mission-specific IT hardware and local network infrastructure.
  • Network and Information Security. As part of our IT services, we often integrate embedded cyber-security technologies and support information assurance (IA) accreditation and forensics. We have DoD 8570.1 certified professionals with competencies that include designing and implementing network topology, IT infrastructure protection, risk management, contingency planning, vulnerability assessment, penetration testing, and certified hacking.

Capability to Bring the Best Skills to Each Task Order. Engility brings the right mix of internal and external resources to deliver successful services and solutions to any IT task order.

Our current skilled and motivated staff provides the foundation needed to support a wide range of IT tasks. In addition, we have time-tested processes for quickly supplementing our staff with highly qualified teammates to meet the unique needs of individual Orders.

Engility frequently partners with large and small companies and is committed to partnering with small business. For the Alliant program, honed by hundreds of current and past partner relationships and tools to promote rapid identification of potential partners, Engility has defined and uses the following proven process to identify the right partners and seamlessly incorporate them into our delivery process.
