KBR Secures $70M Army Sensor Development Technical Analysis Task Order
The U.S. Army has awarded engineering company KBR a four-year, $70 million task order for sensor development technical analysis services. Work under the contract will support the Army Program Executive Office Missiles and Space, Search, Track, Acquire, Radiate, Eliminate Project Office.
The company will provide research, development, test and evaluation services to independently verify and validate sensor and system-of-systems performance within the Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System. Technical support services must also support future multi-domain operation architectures, KBR said Tuesday.
According to Byron Bright, president of KBR Government Solutions, the task order is crucial in maintaining sensor readiness within the Army Fires portfolio. It would also allow the military branch to modernize its technologies and ensure that it stays ahead of future threats and improve its work with other military organizations.
The task order was awarded through the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award contract vehicle. Task orders under this vehicle are designed to generate new knowledge that would improve the Defense Technical Information Center’s repository and support the research and development and science and technology community.
KBR has been working with the U.S. military for over four decades, providing support services to advance air, space, cyber and missile defense systems. It also offers science, technology and engineering solutions to public and private organizations in the U.S. and around the world.
The company is headquartered in Houston and has multiple offices within and outside the U.S.
