FAIRFAX, Va., Feb. 8 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army's MRAP family of vehicles will continue to receive sustainment and logistics support from Virginia's ManTech International.

The company said the support comes under a new $488 million contract.

The award from the U.S. Army's TACOM Contracting Center features a one-year performance period and options totaling 11 months. Under the award ManTech will manage, monitor and sustain equipment operational readiness for the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles.

In addition, ManTech will provide rapid assessment and repair of battle-damaged MRAP and Route Clearance Vehicle equipment and immediate repairs of mechanical failures due to operational damage or system fatigue.

ManTech said the work will be performed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and locations in the United States as required.

"The MRAP FoV program is an important facet of the U.S. military's effort to reduce casualties and improve personnel survivability," said Louis M. Addeo, president and chief operating officer of ManTech's Technical Services Group. "ManTech is honored to be selected once again to assist the U.S. Army in this endeavor."
