The military branch selected ManTech International (Nasdaq: MANT), Del Rey Systems & Technology, Huntington Ingalls Industries’ (NYSE: HII) Camber subsidiary and Alion Science and Technology for the multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts.

Each of the contracts’ base and ceiling values are listed below:
