FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 29 (UPI) -- The U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command has given ManTech International a new contract for maintenance and on-the-job training for Cougar MRAPs.

Under the award, company field service representatives will perform initial inspections, repairs, sustainment maintenance, retrofits, instruction, and modifications for Cougar mine resistant ambush protected vehicles in Afghanistan and the United States.

Work may also be conducted in a number of other overseas locations as required.

"MRAP vehicles continue to save lives and ManTech has been helping keep MRAP and route clearance vehicles operational since 2003," said Louis M. Addeo, president and chief operating officer of ManTech's Technical Services Group.

"We are honored to be selected to extend our support to the Marine Corps' Cougar MRAP fleet."

The contract, if all options are exercised, is for 28 months and is valued at $30.3 million.
