Rick Wagner, president of ManTech International's mission, cyber and intelligence solutions group, has said the company will leverage its cyber forensic and insider threat capabilities to support the mission of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command and the 902nd military intelligence group through a potential $133 million contract.

“INSCOM, like many government partners, faces an ever-evolving threat environment as far as counterterrorism and counterintelligence,“ Wagner told Signal magazine in an interview published Tuesday.

“They have unique requirements, in that the threat is immediate to U.S. forces, and they need access to the best intelligence capabilities to succeed in protecting U.S. forces,“ he added.

The contract calls for the company to field personnel to provide intelligence, technology protection, computer science and analytics support to INSCOM and the command's 902nd.

Wagner, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, noted the company will also provide logistics, training and linguistic support services to the command.
