ManTech Awarded Contract From DHS to Use Geospatial Mapping to Help Prepare and Respond to Natural and Man-made Disasters

Will Demonstrate iCAV at GEOINT Conference, November 13-16, Orlando, FL

FAIRFAX, VA —November 10, 2006 — ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT), a leading provider of innovative technologies and solutions focused on mission-critical national security programs for the Intelligence Community; the Departments of Defense, State, Homeland Security, and Justice; the Space Community; and other U.S. federal government customers, announced today that it has been awarded a contract from the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Preparedness Directorate for iCAV Application Management Services. 

iCAV is a geospatial-intelligence analytic tool that allows DHS and its mission partners to better prepare, prevent, respond and recover from natural and man-made disasters. It unites Homeland Security mission partners through an integrated geographic information system Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) for web-based dissemination, analysis and visualization. Through iCAV, DHS connects previously stove-piped systems providing consistent, mission-specific common operating pictures across organizational boundaries. It is fully supportive of, and a good example of, DHS’ movement to an Enterprise Architecture approach.

ManTech will design, customize and integrate iCAV into a geospatial information infrastructure using a SOA methodology. ManTech will add mission specific, near real-time situational and strategic awareness supporting man-made and natural disaster events, such as tracking hurricanes and the infrastructures they threaten.  The SOA-based approach will produce an interoperable modular platform that allows for quick incorporation of multiple data sources, as well as a secure, easily accessible system that can support information sharing with DHS partners at the federal, state and local levels. As part of this effort, ManTech will provide continued iCAV application development and data integration services; operations, maintenance and deployment support; and configuration management services.

The DHS Preparedness Directorate works with state, local, and private sector partners to identify threats, determine vulnerabilities, and target resources where risk is greatest.  Through grants and training on both national and local levels, the directorate fosters a layered system of protective measures to safeguard U.S. borders, seaports, bridges and highways, and critical information systems.

“ManTech is excited to support iCAV at DHS, where we also successfully support the DHS Homeland Security Information Network.  iCAV fills an important role in providing geospatial capabilities to the Preparedness Directorate and other DHS components, and it can become an integral part of DHS’ ability to share important information with its federal and state partners,” said Joseph R. Fox, President of ManTech Information Systems and Technology.

ManTech will demonstrate iCAV at the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation GEOINT Symposium, November 13 -16, 2006, Orlando, Florida – booth #910.
