ManTech wins $85M DoD IAC task order
ManTech of Herndon, VA announced on October 29 a five-year, $85 million contract to manage the Operational Test Program Set (OTPS) used by Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane Division to ensure superior reliability and maintenance of advanced weapons systems on U.S. Navy aircraft.
ManTech was awarded this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle. These DoD IAC MAC task orders (TOs) are awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the DTIC repository and the R&D and S&T community.
“We are Bringing Digital to the Mission to improve weapons systems maintenance, performance and reliability for U.S. Naval warfighters,” said Andrew Twomey, executive vice president and general manager of ManTech’s Defense Sector. “We look forward to delivering our differentiated intelligent systems engineering capabilities to help ensure competitive edge in every combat scenario.”
Under this contract ManTech will develop hardware and software that performs “Depot Level” diagnostic testing – the highest level – of systems including SIGINT, ELINT and RF components. As required, ManTech will use its ACRE Cyber Range solution to test aircraft weapons systems for cyber platform hardening.
