The Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded an $11.4 million contract to ManTech International Corp. to provide modeling and simulation training applications for the Navy's integrated warfare systems program, according the company.
The contract, which was awarded to ManTech's Gray Hawk subsidiary, has a 15-month base period and two option periods of 17 and 12 months.
Under the contract, ManTech of Fairfax, Va., will expand its interactive modeling and simulation program to include a wide variety of platforms and targets.
ManTech has developed a graphic user interface that allows users to display all tactical interactions, including platforms, sensors and weapons, in 3-D and 2-D views, as well as displays of metrics and outcomes. The application will provide customized, interactive training simulation scenarios of anti-submarine, anti-surface and anti-air war, and expeditionary strike and electronic warfare.Roseanne Gerin is a staff writer for
