KBR to Expand Advanced Development Capabilities for U.S. Air Force with $539M Engineering Task Order

KBR (NYSE: KBR) won a $539 million engineering task order to support rapid prototyping and fielding of systems for the U.S. Air Force's Tactical Exploitation of National Capabilities (TENCAP) program. TENCAP takes national space capabilities and applies them at the tactical level to support operational requirements.

KBR will assist the Air Force in using air, space and cyber capabilities to rapidly deliver agile, leading-edge technologies and systems for the U.S. military. This new work will include engineering services in support of geolocation tracking; sensor, data fusion and dissemination; unconventional warfare and special operations; situational awareness; cyber and spectrum warfare operations; air superiority; command, control and spectrum utilization; and real-time large data analytics and virtualization.

The company will carry out these duties in Colorado as well as other locations around the world over the next five years. KBR has performed similar tasking for the TENCAP program since January 2018.

The Air Force awarded the cost-plus-award-fee task order through the General Services Administration's Federal Systems Integration and Management (FEDSIM) Center using the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) contract, a multiple award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity vehicle for complex, integrated professional services.

"Expanding our expertise of air domain awareness to the Air Force's TENCAP program is an exciting opportunity as we continue to develop and deliver tactical, state-of-the-art solutions to the warfighter community. Not only does this contract allow KBR to serve the Air Force in a greater capacity, it also aligns with the company's strategic vision to grow our military portfolio while DoD simultaneously increases its focus on space," said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO.

KBR continues to enhance its military space footprint. This October KBR completed the acquisition of Centauri, a leading provider of space, directed energy and other advanced technology solutions. The acquisition broadens KBR's military space and intelligence business and builds upon the company's existing capabilities in space system design, development, test, launch and operations.

KBR is proud to be a leader in advancing air, space, cyber, and missile defense systems for the U.S. military. It has provided satellite, ground systems and space communications support for more than 50 years to the U.S. Air Force, NASA, National Reconnaissance Office, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the U.S. Navy. KBR is known for excelling in complex and extreme environments and trusted to overcome the nation's most pressing challenges. KBR is engineering solutions for the needs of today and tomorrow, safely and efficiently.
