ManTech - The *only* vendor with demonstrated expertise at successfully managing all aspects of the introduction of new launch vehicles.

Since 2010, ManTech has enabled 100% Mission Success on over 1,442 rocket operations, rehearsals, tests, landings, recycles, and 230 consecutively successful USAF, USSF, NRO, DOD, NASA, Civil, and Commercial space launches, executing exceptional cradle-to-grave launch vehicle transition from early integration to payload separation. 

ManTech’s expertise includes the introduction of numerous new launch vehicles and the return of crewed spaceflight from US soil and reusable launch vehicles. 

With mission-driven systems engineering and integration knowledge and unique experience transitioning legacy launch systems ManTech has delivered nearly $1.5 billion in savings to the USSF Space and Missile Systems Center, with a 567% increase in annual launch tempo.

 ManTech delivers the launch support you can trust.

MISSION-FOCUSED SOLUTION AREAS

Digital Engineering

Delta Launch

Launch and space customers face complex challenges to ensure their missions are successful. To meet these challenges, our Model-Based Engineering (MBE) solutions provide several important benefits across the National Security Space Launch (NSSL) Enterprise

  • Integration of mission, systems, physics, cost models
  • Lower costs across mission lifecycle when applied during early integration
  • Model-Based Engineering (MBE)
  • Modeling as a Service (MaaS)
  • Leveraging Commercial Best Practices

Security and Mission Operations

rocket launch

 

Securing mission critical systems and protecting classified information are of utmost importance to national security no matter where it takes us – land, sea, air, space or cyber national and tactical systems of intelligence. ManTech delivers comprehensive mission assurance and safety in the development, engineering, acquisition, manufacturing, testing, integration and support of critical systems and missions, including space lift and satellite systems.

ManTech has embraced the challenge of identifying and capturing the unique threats and vulnerabilities in the space domain with our newest offering, the ManTech Space Range. Built upon the success of ACRE®, ManTech’s innovative and fully operational cyber range, we are expanding our robust, scalable and hyper-realistic range to encompass the unique requirements of a cyber infrastructure supporting a space enterprise.

  • Space Range is a reusable, flexible, physical and virtualized space and cyber range
  • Space Range is built using a Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) model
  • Entire space, ground and network environments can be converted to Software Defined Infrastructure (SDIs) on demand
  • Ability to provide a before and after vulnerability assessment
  • Realistic network traffic stimulation
  • ManTech’s team of Space and Cyber professionals bring an offense-informed cyber defense

Space Resilience

satellite

 

Resilience is the ability of an architecture to support the functions necessary for mission success in spite of hostile action or adverse conditions. An architecture that is more resilient can provide these functions with higher probability, shorter periods of reduced capability, and across a wider range of scenarios, conditions, and threats. Resilience may leverage cross-domain or alternative government, commercial or international capabilities.

  • Avoidance: countermeasures against potential adversaries
  • Robustness: architecture properties and design features to enhance survivability and resist functional degradation
  • Reconstitution: plans and operations to re-establish full operational capability and capacity for the full range of missions, operations, or contingencies
