The Naval Sea Systems Command has awarded a five-year, $34.9 million contract to ManTech International Corp. to help design and develop military products for the Naval Surface Warfare Center's Indian Head Division.
The company said today that it will provide 'human systems integration' of engineering, technical and management services to products and systems such as unmanned vehicles, training ranges, air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons, and aerial target shipboard combat systems.
Human system integration includes the design, analysis and engineering work done for military products and systems, and addresses such factors as manpower, personnel, training, safety and occupational health, among other related issues.
ManTech also will be involved in the development of performance tools, technical data support, product and systems deployment, testing and training, and program management support.
ManTech's team includes Applied Techniques Corp. of Waldorf, Md., a provider of human system integration services, and HiPK LLC of White Stone, Va., a consulting services firm.
The Indian Head Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center offers special weapons, explosives safety and ordnance support to the U.S. military, foreign militaries and the ordnance industry. The weapons and ordnance developed by the division are used on all major Defense Department weapons systems.William Welsh is the deputy editor of
