ManTech said the work will be carried out in the United States, Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait and Oman.

Added Louis M. Addeo, president and chief operating officer of ManTech's Technical Services Group: "Our in-theater experience and expertise will be great assets to the program. We are proud to have been selected again to help support this important mission."
