KBRwyle Strengthens U.S. Strategic Deterrent Forces with $36.5M Task Order

07/25/2018

HOUSTON - (July 25, 2018) - KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that its global government services business, KBRwyle, has been awarded a $36.5 million task order by the U.S. Air Force Installation Contracting Agency (AFICA) to provide sustainment engineering support to the 414th Supply Chain Management Squadron.

KBRwyle's work will support the LGM-30G Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) and all associated ground and support equipment. This work will help ensure these missile systems remain available to the Air Force warfighter. The ICBM is a key element of the nation's strategic deterrent forces.

KBRwyle will perform scientific and technical analyses and make recommendations related to Reliability, Maintainability, Quality, Supportability, and Interoperability (RMQSI), nuclear surety, safety, life cycle management, failure testing, and diminishing manufacturing sourcing issues. It will also conduct research and development on flaw detection and corrosion resistance.

This work will be primarily performed at Hill Air Force Base in Utah, as well as other locations around the U.S. The task order award period is 51 months.

"KBRwyle has helped the military for decades to develop, field and sustain missile and space systems that are essential to national security," said Byron Bright, President, KBR Government Services U.S. "Our missile expertise combined with our sustainment engineering capabilities will enable us to assist the 414th Supply Chain Management Squadron in meeting its mission."

The Air Force awarded this cost-plus-fixed-fee task order under the DoD's Information Analysis Center's (IAC) Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DSTAT) multi-award contract. KBRwyle won a seat on the DSTAT contract in June 2014.

Specializing in high impact, mission critical services, KBRwyle is a top systems engineering and integration provider to the U.S. armed forces, and has supported more than 200 military weapons systems.

Estimated revenue associated with this contract award will be booked into the backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Government Services business segment.
