ManTech awarded $45M for technical support of next generation systems in unmanned aircraft
ManTech of Herndon, VA announced on August 2 a four-year $45 million task order awarded by the U.S. Air Force Installation Contracting Agency (AFICA) under the DoD Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DS TAT) Multi-Award Contract (MAC). Under this award, ManTech will provide significant technology upgrades in unmanned aircraft systems for intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), targeting and precision strike capabilities for Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane Division on behalf of the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) Persistent Maritime UAS Program Office (PMA 262).
“By bringing digital to the mission we are driving advanced computing, communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities to the tactical edge so America’s warfighters can put actionable intelligence to work in real time,” said Kevin Phillips, president and CEO of ManTech. “The end game is to ensure that our military has competitive advantage.”
ManTech’s work will support total lifecycle management of next generation airborne systems in the MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft, a vital component of persistent maritime ISR missions. Specific systems benefiting include mission and management, multi-function active sensor radars and electro-optical/infrared ISR.
