Army battlefield intelligence work to be done by ManTech

The Army has awarded a one-year, $7.5 million contract to ManTech International Corp. to support development of products that fuse intelligence information for increased battlefield awareness.

Under the contract, ManTech of Fairfax, Va., will provide the Army's Product Director Intelligence Fusion projects office with support services for fusion products being developed, fielded and transitioned to Army units for tactical and strategic use in Iraq and other parts of the world. The company will integrate, test, train, field, warehouse, and assist in hardware and software product maintenance.

Intelligence fusion products are systems that give military commanders a common picture of battle spaces via data that offers relevant intelligence to understand enemy deployments, capabilities, vulnerabilities and potential courses of action.

ManTech has supported Product Director Intelligence Fusion systems since 1982. The company will complete the services at its field office in Fort Hood, Texas.
