ManTech International Corp. said Monday it won a $488 million contract from the Army to assess and repair military mine-resistant vehicles damaged in battle.

The contract covers 11 months initially.

Work will be done in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and at locations throughout the U.S. The company will monitor readiness of the military mine-resistant vehicles and perform immediate repairs of mechanical failures.

The "mine resistant, ambush-protected" vehicles, or MRAPs, are designed to protect soldiers from armor-piercing roadside bombs.
