Engineering Support and Training Development
KBR has won two recompete contracts from the US Navy and will continue to provide engineering support for selected training systems and aircraft survivability equipment, the company announced on 19 July. Total value is stated as exceeding $120 million (€102 million).
A $64.9 million task order requires the company to develop and upgrade training system hardware and software, as well as electronic classroom content and interactive courseware for the E-2/C-2 Airborne Command and Control Systems Program Office (PMA-231). KBR will also research and develop recommendations for live, virtual, and constructive training that is interoperable with other platforms. This work will enhance training effectiveness for aircrew and maintainers, increasing overall readiness for the Navy.
A further $55.3 million task order covers research and analysis, including forecasting and predictive modelling, for the Advanced Tactical Aircraft Protection Systems Program Office (PMA-272). The company will boost the reliability, availability, and maintainability of aircraft survivability equipment, including electronic systems that safeguard aircraft and crews against IR and laser missiles and other threats on the battlefield. KBR will also develop and manage databases and electronic technical manuals.
“These recompetes speak to KBR’s commitment and capability to prepare and protect men and women in the fleet. Our work helps servicemembers carry out their missions effectively and come home safely,” stated Byron Bright, KBR Government Solutions President.
