Program Examples


U.S. Navy-Wide, Tactical Training Theater Assessment Program (TAP)

Naval training and test ranges can require large areas and are often questioned for their potential impact on sensitive environments. In order to retain the ability to train personnel and test equipment, the Navy has developed an integrated program to assess the impact of its ranges and minimize impact on the environment, populated areas, and shipping and navigation. TAP is the Navy’s comprehensive program focused on environmental planning and sustainability of training and test ranges worldwide. ManTech delivers critical planning solutions to complex environmental and regulatory challenges in order to preserve and enhance the capabilities of Navy and Marine Corps ranges.


U.S. Marine Corps, Range and Training Area Management Programs

ManTech has been a leading provider of integrated solutions in support of U.S. Marine Corps range planning and policy initiatives since the establishment in 2004 of the Range and Training Area Management Branch within Training and Education Command (TECOM).

ManTech has supported TECOM in developing many of its cornerstone guidance documents, including Marine Corps Reference Publication 3-0C, Operational Training Ranges Required Capabilities. We also contribute to the development of TECOM programmatic guidance and policies, including drafting Marine Corps Orders, preparing reports to Congress regarding range requirements and capabilities, and supporting the coordination and implementation of the Marine Corps Range Program across the Service.

In 2006, ManTech prepared the first Range Complex Management Plan (RCMP) for a Marine Corps installation (Camp Lejeune). Since then, ManTech has developed RCMPs for every Marine Corps training base, and for Marine Corps Installation regional commands. Additionally, ManTech has supported multiple Marine Corps installations in preparing range design studies, range condition assessments, airspace utilization analyses, airfield capability assessments and obstruction analyses, encroachment control studies, and installation master plans. ManTech has particular expertise with the integration of geospatial analysis using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in its products that support Marine Corps ranges.


U.S. Air Force, Environmental Conservation Support Services

ManTech has supported Vandenberg Air Force Base in the execution of its environmental planning programs for nearly 25 years. ManTech has a diverse background in all aspects of launch-support operations and environmental planning for the 30th Civil Engineering Squadron Environmental Flight.

We understand both the unique operational conditions and mission requirements of this installation and its tenant commands, and the demands of sustaining and conserving the natural and cultural resources that are found at Vandenberg Air Force Base. Our support includes a team of highly experienced biologists, ecologists, and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) specialists.

ManTech’s support under this program includes sensitive species management plans, threatened and endangered species surveys, marine mammal monitoring, invasive species control, construction monitoring, habitat restoration plans and implementation, predator control, biological and environmental assessments, mitigation monitoring, erosion control, storm water monitoring, and solid waste environmental compliance.
