ManTech wins DHS iCAV management contract

Published 15 November 2006

Company will build out and integrate the geospatial mapping system intended to provide real-time data on natural and man-made disasters

Fairfax, Virginia-based ManTech, recently in the news for its spin-off of NetWitness, announced this week that it has won a contract to provide appliaction management services for DHS’s Infrastructure Critical Asset Viewer (iCAV) system. iCAV, mandated by HSPD-7, is a geospatial-intelligence analytic tool that maps out critical infrastructure resources by incorporating a range of private and public data sets. The idea is to create Web-based, real-time situational and strategic awareness to allow better government response during natural and man-made emergencies — tracking hurricanes and threatened bridges, for instance.

ManTech’s deal calls on the company to integrate and support the system as it takes form through an unnamed services oriented architecture. As part of this effort, ManTech will provide application development and data integration services; operations, maintenance, and deployment support; and configuration management services. The company declined to give a price figure for the contract.
