information technology company ManTech won a five-year, $118 million contract with the US Navy to apply its technology services to unmanned aircraft systems.
The contract is offered by the Naval Surface Warfare Center and expects ManTech to support intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance in aircraft systems such as the MQ-4C Triton, the company announced on Tuesday.
“As part of this important recompetition victory, our goal is to secure high-speed battlespace dominance across the full range of combat scenarios,” said David Hathawayexecutive vice president and general manager of the defense sector of ManTech.
Hathaway also emphasized intelligent systems engineering as a key skill in ManTech’s toolkit.
The NSWC contract will see ManTech employ model-based systems engineering alongside the company’s cyber-range environment, ACRE. ManTech’s work will also use electro-optical infrared sensors that enhance vision in all lighting conditions.
The project is part of the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center multi-award contract vehicle.
It comes on the heels of an $88 million order under which ManTech is supplying help with testing and assessment Navy weapons and combat systems. This contract is also a product of the Naval Surface Warfare Center and was announced in January 2022.
