HOUSTON --- KBR, Inc. announced today that its global government services business, KBRwyle, has been awarded two contracts totaling almost $100 million under the DoD Information Analysis Center's (IAC) Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DSTAT) multi-award contract. These contracts were awarded by the Air Force Installation Contracting Agency (AFICA).
-- KBRwyle was awarded a $41.9M defense systems task order to provide the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) with analysis, research, and product support for aeronautical systems. KBRwyle will perform engineering, airworthiness, system security and assurance, risk management, and safety analyses for aircraft in the center's portfolio.
This work will assist the AFLCMC's Engineering Directorate in providing cutting-edge weapon systems support for infrared countermeasures, cyber resiliency and survivability and vulnerability analyses of the latest stealth and materials technology. A trusted partner of the U.S. Air Force, KBRwyle has supported AFLCMC's Engineering Directorate since 2007.
-- KBRwyle was awarded a $54.6M defense systems task order to provide the AFLCMC Special Projects Office with detailed acquisition strategy development, sustainment, engineering, cybersecurity, strategic planning, and business process improvement.
KBRwyle will also continue assisting the Air Force's efforts in standing up its F-35 Hybrid Product Support Integrator organization, F-35A Fleet Management Office, and other new programs. KBRwyle has carried out similar work for the Special Projects Office for three years, and holds more than 24 years of experience with the F-35 program.
The award period for both cost-plus-fixed-fee task orders is 42 months and the work will primarily be performed at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. The company won a seat on the DSTAT contract in June 2014.
"KBRwyle is honored to partner with the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center in managing weapons systems from inception to sundown," said Byron Bright, KBR President, Government Services U.S. "Through these task orders, KBRwyle will continue to provide our technical expertise across the center."
KBRwyle performs work at several other major units at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, including the Air Force Research Laboratory and Air Force Institute of Technology.
