The first deal is valued at $82m and is set to involve the integration of command, control, communications, computer and intelligence (C4I) capabilities on-board the USMC’s combat vehicles.

The contract has been awarded by the US Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWARSYSCEN) Atlantic.

In addition, the agreement will see ManTech be responsible for providing systems engineering, software integration and acquisition management support for SPAWARSYSCEN Atlantic’s Vehicular Technology Transition Integrated Products Team (IPT) in support of the Digital Integration Facility (DIF).

"We are proud to be a part of the new digital integration process driving operational readiness and successful combat mission performance, while ensuring the safety of American military lives."

ManTech Mission Solutions & Services (MSS) president and chief operating officer Daniel J Keefe said: “We are proud to be a part of the new digital integration process driving operational readiness and successful combat mission performance, while ensuring the safety of American military lives.”

The company has also secured a $22.5m contract to deliver maintenance and support services for the engineering, acquisition and lifecycle sustainment of the USMC’s tactical vehicles as part of a separate development.

The award has been made through the US Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DS TAT) multi-award contract (MAC).

ManTech is scheduled to carry out various research and development works under the arrangement, as well as offer design, acquisition and full lifecycle management services in support of the USMC’s light, medium and heavy tactical vehicles, in addition to legacy wheeled vehicle systems and ancillary equipment.

The current design upgrades are intended to help improve safety and protection measures, while enhancing the vehicles’ fuel efficiency and performance in all driving conditions.

“Through ongoing test and evaluation, we deliver vehicles that undergo continuous improvement to stay ahead of emerging threats.”
