Ship Alteration Installation (ALT)
With CDI’s extensive expertise and capability in naval engineering and its application to ship modernization and alterations, providing Alteration Installation Team (AIT) support services was a logical expansion of our solutions and service offerings to our naval customers.

CDI AITs have supported both CONUS and OCONUS installations. CDI AITs are very mobile and have performed AIT installations pier-side, at shipyards, and at the CDI full-service industrial facility in Norfolk, Virginia.
