KBR to Improve Reliability, Availability of Army’s CH-47 Chinook

KBR has been awarded a $49M recompete contract to provide system acquisition support and reliability improvements for the Army's CH-47 Chinook helicopters.

The contract will also serve other select aircraft in support of the Cargo Helicopter Project Management Office within the Army's Program Executive Office Aviation, KBR said Wednesday.

“These wins are a product of KBR's decades of expertise in systems engineering and innovative warfighter solutions for manned and unmanned aircraft. We take great pride in aiding the U.S. military with our mission-critical services,” said KBR Government Solutions President Byron Bright, a Potomac Officers Club member and 2020 Wash100 winner. 

KBR said it will provide research, development, testing, studies, analysis and recommendations to improve the CH-47's availability, improve reliability and reduce life cycle support service costs. Work will be done over the next five years primarily in Huntsville, Alabama.

The cost-plus-fixed-fee task order was awarded by the Air Force's 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron through the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center's multiple-award contract vehicle.

DOD IAC contracts were designed to foster competition at the task order level. The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts focus on the collection, analysis, synthesis and dissemination of scientific and technical information.

KBR said it has been supporting the Pentagon through the DOD IAC and its predecessors since 2005. The company currently supports more than 25 Navy, Army and Air Force aviation platforms.

KBR previously also won a $41M award to deliver high-end technical services to PEO Aviation. Under the terms of the task order, KBR will make recommendations to enhance airborne intelligence operations or the Fixed Wing Project Office.
