KBR has been awarded a US$42.5 million task order to support technical training product development for the US Navy’s Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).
As part of this cost-plus-fixed-fee task order, KBR will provide research and analysis to upgrade, modernise, and develop state-of-the-art training products associated with aircraft and other systems.
KBR will work with NAVAIR, the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), and the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Training and Simulator Division (NAWCTSD) to support training needs in response to updated requirements and systems.
KBR was awarded this recompete task order under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center's (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract by the USAF Installation Contracting Center.
This work is expected to be performed over 60 months and will include additional technical training and product development support for other government agencies and foreign military sales. KBR will perform the work for this contract primarily in Orange Park and Orlando, Florida, and Lexington Park, Maryland.
Byron Bright, president, government solutions US, said, "I am proud of our KBR team for its hard work and unwavering dedication to meet emergent training requirements that help sustain fleet readiness and ensure the safety of maintainers and operators in the US military."
KBR has provided technical training product development for NAVAIR for almost a decade and has supported the mission of the DoD research and development community through various predecessor DoD IAC contracts since 2005.
KBR is one of DoD IAC's leading prime contractors, having successfully provided over $3 billion in solutions to a variety of DoD customers.
Bright added, "We look forward to developing training solutions with NAVAIR as we continue to solidify our position as a trusted source of innovative engineering and technical expertise for the Department of Defense."
