ManTech International Corp. to work on Naval Sea Systems Command
The U.S. Navy awarded an $87 million contract to Herndon-based defense contractor ManTech International Corp. to provide information technology research, development and engineering for the Naval Sea Systems Command, the company announced Thursday.
ManTech was awarded the contract through the U.S. Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s Multiple Award Contract, which are awarded by the U.S. Air Force Installation Contracting Center.
“ManTech has supported NAVSEA for 35 years across the full spectrum of engineering requirements,” Andy Twomey, ManTech executive vice president and general manager of the defense sector, said in a statement. “ManTech will improve the quality, integration and efficiency of the NMMES architecture to enhance ship maintenance operations and improve readiness for the Navy’s most critical surface and submarine platforms.”
Under the contract, ManTech will use artificial intelligence automation and DevSecOps (development, security and operations) to increase the speed of software development cycle times for the Navy’s Maritime Maintenance Enterprise Solution (NMMES). The NMMES is the information technology toolset used in the Navy’s ship maintenance and repair at its four public shipyards in Norfolk, Portsmouth, Puget Sound and Pearl Harbor.
