Under the contract, ManTech will continue to provide the CTTSO and its subordinate offices with Advisory and Assistance Services (A&AS) and Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance (SETA) services.
The mission of the CTTSO is to conduct the National R&D Program for Combating Terrorism through rapid research, development and prototyping.

At the improvised device defeat and explosive countermeasures division of CTTSO, the group continues to monitor IED threats, said program manager Edwin Bundy.
It "will be utilized to search under and around comers, doors, interior and exterior walls, fences, through pipes and duct work, and in and through confined spaces," CTTSO materials said.
This can be dangerous for operators and result in collateral damage, CTTSO materials stated.
It should create a blinding light for five seconds and generate "debilitating" sound pressure levels, CTTSO materials said.
