ManTech dispatches analysts to NATO facility abroad

Contractor will work at alliance learning center in Portugal

ManTech International Corp. will take its analysis expertise abroad to assist NATO’s learning center in Portugal as a result of a five-year, $8.8 million contract.

The award from NATO’s Headquarters, Supreme Allied Command Transformation, will support the alliance’s Joint Analysis and Lessons Learned Centre in Monsanto, near Lisbon, Portugal.

The JALLC is NATO’s primary agency for the analysis of operations, exercises, training and experiments, and for the collection and dissemination of lessons learned, according to a ManTech announcement today.

The agency deploys teams worldwide to support NATO, analyzing all aspects of the alliance’s work at the operational and strategic levels. The center also hosts NATO’s Lessons Learned Database, which captures, stores and processes instructional data.

Under the terms of the award, ManTech operational analysts will serve on JALLC analysis teams and assist in data collection and analysis for ongoing as well as emergent NATO operations.

JALLC’s analysis process embraces all aspects of an operational issue from doctrine and training to operational processes, logistical support, command and control, and communication processes, the ManTech statement said.

The agency currently works with NATO’s operations in Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan and on maritime security operations in the Mediterranean, which support NATO Response Force exercises and training of troops before deployment.

The center also has contributed analysis expertise during NATO’s humanitarian relief efforts after the Pakistan earthquake in 2005 and security operations during the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece.

ManTech International, of Fairfax, Va., ranks No. 48 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
