HOUSTON, March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that its global government services business, KBRwyle, has been awarded three contracts totaling $95.7 million to support cybersecurity and engineering efforts for the U.S. military.
KBRwyle was awarded these contracts under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award (DoD IAC MAC) contract vehicle for work to be performed for various U.S. military organizations. These task orders were awarded by the U.S. Air Force Installation Contracting Agency (AFICA).
- KBRwyle was awarded a $41.9 million cybersecurity task order to help pioneer an Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) approach to data analysis and exploitation for the U.S. Air Force (USAF) Research Laboratory 711th Human Performance Wing. This will help a variety of USAF and DoD customers discover hidden correlations, better understand data analysis results, and make more informed decisions.
This cost-plus-fixed-fee task order was awarded under the DoD IAC’s Cyber Security and Information Systems Technical Area Task (CSTAT) multi-award contract. KBRwyle won a seat on the CSTAT contract in 2015. This work will be performed primarily at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio over the next five years.
- KBRwyle was awarded a $35.3 million task order to provide information technology (IT) and cybersecurity services for the U.S. Navy’s Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) activities. Specifically, KBRwyle will support the use and application of cyber-related technologies in the design, development, testing, and evaluation of enterprise-wide IT and information management systems and infrastructure. KBRwyle will assist NAVAIR logistics in providing IT operations and maintenance, enterprise architecture, automated data processing, and enterprise license management services.
AFICA awarded this cost-plus-fixed-fee task order awarded under the DoD IAC’s CSTAT contract. This work will primarily be performed at Naval Air Station (NAS) Patuxent River in Lexington Park, Maryland over a three-year period.
- KBRwyle was awarded a $18.5 million task order to provide a full spectrum of engineering services, including cybersecurity, obsolescence management, reverse engineering, and ground vehicle power and mobility. KBRwyle will assist the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Research, Development, and Engineering Center (TARDEC) in enhancing technologies for integration onto ground systems; assess the development of new technologies; and conduct survivability modeling and simulation for new systems.
This cost-plus-fixed-fee task order was awarded under the DoD IAC’s Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DSTAT) contract. KBRwyle won a seat on the DSTAT contract in June 2014. The work will be performed in Sterling Heights and Warren, Michigan over a 45-month period.
“Our recent series of cybersecurity wins underscores our position as a leading provider of innovative cyber and electronic security solutions,” said Byron Bright, KBR President, Government Services U.S. “These awards demonstrate our ability to continually provide trusted, knowledge-based services to meet our customers’ cybersecurity and IT needs.”
