U.S. Air Force Awards ManTech $6.8 Million Space Control Information and Missions Systems Support Contract


ManTech International Corporation , a Fairfax, Virginia-based IT and technical services solution provider supporting Department of Defense and intelligence community customers, announced today that the U.S. Air Force 21st Space Wing based in Colorado Springs, Colorado has awarded ManTech Aegis Research Corporation (MARC) the Space Control Information and Mission Systems Support (SCIMSS) contract. Competitively awarded under the GSA IT Services Schedule, the SCIMMS contract has an estimated value of $6.8 million covering a six month base period and three one-year options.

Commenting on the award, ManTech National Security Solutions Group President Evan Hineman, stated "The SCIMMS win is an excellent example of business synergy between an established ManTech subsidiary, ManTech Advanced Systems International, Inc. and a recent acquisition, neither of which would have competed separately for this work--we are very pleased with this award."

Under the terms of the contract, ManTech will provide a broad range of information technology services to four Air Force operations locations in the western United States, expanding ManTech's support to Air Force space activities in the areas of network support and operations and maintenance.
