FAIRFAX, Va., 7 July 2005. ManTech International Corp. announced today that it has been awarded an $11.4 million contract from the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) to provide modeling and simulation/tactical training applications in support of the NAVSEA Program Executive Office, Integrated Warfare Systems.

Under the contract, ManTech will expand its interactive modeling and simulation program for the Navy that depicts the locating, identifying, tracking, and engagement of targets, to include a wide variety of platforms and targets.

The application will provide interactive training simulations of anti-submarine, anti-surface and anti-air warfare � as well as expeditionary, strike, and electronic warfare -- with a user configurable interface to customize training and simulation scenarios.

The graphical user interface ManTech has developed permits the user to display all tactical interactions (platforms, sensors and weapons) in a three-dimensional view, a two-dimensional view (Navy Tactical Data System), and tabular, drill down displays of metrics and outcomes.

Work will be performed at the contractor facility. The multi-year contract has a 15-month base-period, and two option periods for 17 and 12 months.

"Our simulation program, which has already been used to assess several future weapons and sensor systems, offers the Navy a multi-use application to aid in weapons systems and tactics assessment training. This contract will widen the scope and complexity of tactical simulations available to NAVSEA and the fleet user," said Joseph Barbano, senior vice president for the analysis and technology group, ManTech Gray Hawk Systems.

The NAVSEA contract was awarded to ManTech's Gray Hawk subsidiary, which ManTech acquired last month. Gray Hawk was a diversified, high technology company providing a broad range of intelligence related services to the homeland security, law enforcement, intelligence community and Department of Defense markets.

Headquartered in Fairfax, Va., ManTech International Corp. provides technologies for mission-critical national security programs for the intelligence community and the departments of Defense, State, Homeland Security, Justice and other U.S. federal government customers. ManTech's expertise includes systems engineering, systems integration, technology and software development, enterprise security architecture, information assurance, intelligence operations support, network and critical infrastructure protection, information technology, communications integration and engineering support.

The company supports the advanced telecommunications systems that are used in Operation Iraqi Freedom and in other parts of the world; provides the physical and cyber security to protect U.S. embassies all over the world; has developed a secure, collaborative communications system for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; and provides critical information to the U.S. Navy.
