KBR Partners With Nonprofit to Advance Research on Military Traumatic Brain Injuries

KBR and the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine have entered into a partnership to advance research on traumatic brain injuries affecting service members.

President of KBR Government Solutions U.S. Byron Bright, a 4×24 member, said that aside from caring for the well-being of service members, the collaboration also shows the company’s commitment to supporting the military by prioritizing human health and technology.

The Service Personnel Advancing Research in Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy contract requires the provision of support services for neuroscience research on preventing and treating service members with chronic traumatic encephalopathy. It comes with a performance period of 52 months, including supporting the development of a treatment to address the illness, KBR said.

KBR has a long history of working with the government to advance different endeavors. In July, it was awarded a contract to provide support services for NASA space exploration missions, which includes avionics and software support and the provision of space-flight operations products and services.

The defense contractor also partnered with the Department of Defense on advancing different research priorities, including artificial intelligence and renewable energy.
