Alion Science & Technology
In 1936, the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) established the Research Foundation of Armour Institute of Technology — known as the Armour Research Foundation (ARF) — with the goal of testing and developing new, beneficial technologies. The company name changed to IIT Research Institute (IITRI) on June 1, 1963. On December 20, 2002, approximately 1,600 IITRI employees purchased a majority of the organization’s assets, founding Alion Science and Technology and retaining the rich heritage of innovation and exploration that has characterized the company since its inception. Alion continues to draw on these successes, giving our employees the inspiration to continue seeking new technological and scientific solutions to problems both great and small.
