HERNDON, Va. ManTech announced a four-year $260 million task order awarded under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle.

According to officials, 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.

Under this award, ManTech will aim to implement a major technology modernization initiative to transform mission systems in manned U.S. Navy Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Aircraft for Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane Division on behalf of the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) PMA 290.

As a follow-on to its work on PMA 290 begun in 2018, ManTech intends to deploy technology solutions in P-3C Orion and P-8A Poseidon aircraft widely used in anti-submarine and anti-surface electronic warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and survivability missions. According to the company, the scope of this program includes quick reaction and engineering analyses for total lifecycle management, and the logistical support essential to serving operational requirements.
