ManTech wins $35M award for Marine Corps tech R&D
ManTech of Herndon, VA announced on November 28 a $35 million award for the U.S. Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory Division of Science and Technology (MCWL S&T) to perform research and development of future technologies that can deliver unique systems capabilities to U.S. Marine Corps warfighters. The award was under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center (DoD IAC), Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DS TAT) Multiple Award Contract issued by the Air Force Installation Contracting Agency.
ManTech will identify emerging technologies for reusability, interoperability, scalability, and mapping practical applications of these innovations to priority operational needs. Areas of focus for this 44-month task order will include U.S. Marine Corps Aviation, C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computer, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance), cyber, electronic warfare, medical, logistics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and weapons systems. ManTech will also add capability and capacity to MCWL S&T through Additive Manufacturing 3D printing, enabling project managers to modify technologies in close to real-time.
“By defining, measuring, and validating the fit of emerging technologies with combat needs, we are bringing digital to the mission in ways that will advance combat advantage for Marine Corps warfighters,” said Kevin Phillips, president and CEO of ManTech. “Our agile approach will deliver the pragmatic results that the MCWL S&T Division seeks, quickly and at lower cost.”
