Alion's Approach

Our participation in the CSC program would establish a world-class ship design capability in Canada. Our 80 years of experience and proven expertise in ship design would strengthen Alion Canada’s position to export its ship design capabilities to the broader global market. It will leverage existing Canadian partnerships and a completed CSC design baseline.  This is a prime example of Alion’s business model: locally developed, globally delivered. Promoting Alion Canada’s ship design capability internationally will continue to support Canadian jobs and growth for the long-term. Alion’s approach to the CSC program will bring long-lasting economic benefits to Canada.
