ManTech wins $273M Homeland Security contract
Herndon-based company to work on business intelligence services for Customs and Border Protection
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security awarded Herndon-based ManTech, a technology contractor for U.S. defense, intelligence and federal civilian agencies, a five-year, $273 million contract to provide business intelligence support services for Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the company announced Thursday.
Under the contract, ManTech will perform services that prevent crime and terrorism, according to a company statement. CBP has used ManTech’s services since 2017 to prevent terrorist attacks, stop human trafficking, intercept illegal drugs and disconnect terror and crime networks. This contract will allow ManTech to build on its existing analytics, automation and artificial intelligence capabilities, according to the company.
“ManTech’s sophisticated analytics, automation and AI capabilities allow us to analyze mountains of data to find and deliver actionable, accurate and relevant intelligence essential to safeguarding our nation,” Bryce Pippert, executive vice president of ManTech’s federal civilian sector, said in a statement. “Harnessing the power of machine learning, we identify data anomalies that might be missed by the human eye, as well as subtle trend shifts that can be highly predictive of future behavior.”
ManTech will also develop data visualization for use by CBP officers to identify intent, threat level and target locations under the contract.
Founded in 1968, ManTech, a Fortune 1000 company, reported more than $2 billion in revenue last year.
