ManTech Awarded $23.3M Reliability Engineering Support Services Contract to Support NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT) announced that it was recently awarded the recompete for the Reliability Engineering Support Services contract from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The competitively awarded prime contract, received in the third quarter, is valued at $23.3 million with a three-year base and two option years.

Services provided by ManTech under the contract include circuit and systems reliability; modeling, simulation and analysis; dynamics; thermal and structural analysis; natural space environments; electromagnetic compatibility; problem failure reporting; probabilistic risk assessment; and product and quality assurance for the flight projects at JPL.

“We will apply our extensive systems engineering experience and strong knowledge of the NASA JPL mission to support the customer on this contract,” said Larry Prior, President and COO, ManTech International Corporation. “ManTech is an industry leader in safety, reliability and quality engineering supporting JPL, multiple NASA Centers, the National Reconnaissance Office, Missile Defense Agency, the Navy and the Air Force Space Command.”

ManTech’s teammates on the JPL contract include Alejo Engineering, Inc.; Aspen Products, Inc.; Fettig Research Evaluation Enterprises, Inc.; Fierheller Engineering Corporation; KG Magnetics, Inc.; Newson Consulting Inc.; Maden Technologies; Millennium Engineering Integration Co.; MORI Associates, Inc. and WestWind Engineering Inc.

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is the lead U.S. center for robotic exploration of the solar system, and conducts major programs in space-based Earth sciences and astronomy. JPL spacecraft have visited all of the planets from Mercury to Neptune.

ManTech has successfully supported many NASA programs including the Hubble Space Telescope, for which the company received the NASA George M. Low Award and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Contractor Excellence Award. ManTech also currently supports Shuttle launch activities at Cape Canaveral, FL and its NeXolve subsidiary is building a five-layer sunshield – roughly the size of a tennis court – for the NASA James Webb Space Telescope, the successor to the Hubble. ManTech developed the shield using techniques employed in the creation of its patent-pending, award-winning, thin-film polymer technology.
