KBR to Upgrade, Integrate New Technology for US Navy Aircraft Through $69.2M Contract Win

KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has been awarded a $69.2 million task order to deliver total life cycle management of critical airborne manned reconnaissance aircraft systems for the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane (NSWC Crane) and the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) E-2/C-2 Airborne Command and Control Program Office (PMA 231).

Under the task order, KBR will modify and upgrade legacy technology, while developing and integrating new technology, for aircraft intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting (ISR&T) systems. The E-2 is the foremost carrier-born aircraft capable of providing early detection of enemy threats and enemy response to carrier operations conducted in accordance with America's declared defense strategy. The work will focus primarily on the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, with additional support for the E-2C Hawkeye and C-2A Greyhound aircraft.

KBR was awarded the contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center's (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle. DoD IAC MAC task orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force's 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron with the goal of enhancing the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) repository and the research and development (R&D) and science and technology (S&T) community.
