ManTech to support US Army INSCOM
ManTech International has received a contract from the US Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) to support its counter-intelligence and counter-terrorism missions.
Under the $133 million contract, ManTech will provide qualified personnel to support intelligence, analytical, forensics, technology protection, intelligence analysis and related computer science assistance.
The contract is for one year with options to extend until 2020.
INSCOM executes mission command of operational intelligence and security forces; conducts and synchronises worldwide multi-discipline and all-source intelligence and security operations. The command also delivers linguist support and intelligence-related advanced skills training, acquisition support, logistics, communications, and other specialised capabilities in support of army, joint, and coalition commands and the US intelligence community.
Rick Wagner, president of ManTech's Mission, Cyber and Intelligence Solutions Group, said: ‘Given the geometric rise in terrorist attacks and aggressive posturing by hostile nation states, America's counter-intelligence and counter-terrorism activities remain central to national defence and security. ManTech's vital work with INSCOM is the latest demonstration of our commitment to ‘securing the future' of this nation.’
