Navy enlists ManTech for study of ship noise levels

The Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded a five-year, $8.9 million task order to ManTech International Corp. for engineering and technical support services for surface-ship radiated-noise trials, according to the company.

The task order was issued under the SeaPort Enhanced Multiple Award contract, which ManTech won in April 2004. The Fairfax, Va.,company will collect and analyze data, develop software, and provide documentation and engineering maintenance services under the naval command's Surface Ship Radiated Noise Measurement Program.

ManTech will perform the work at sea on U.S. Navy vessels and at selected Navy shore-based facilities.

The Naval Sea Systems Command is the largest of the Navy's five systems commands. It builds and supports the country's fleet of ships and combat systems. The command manages more than 100 acquisition programs and accounts for nearly one-fifth of the Navy's budget.
