KBR Fortifies Army's Battlespace Advantage with $165M Missile Systems Task Order

August 4, 2020
KBR will continue to provide engineering for the Army's most cutting-edge tactical missile systems

HOUSTON, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has been awarded a $165 million task order to perform key engineering services on tactical missiles for the Tactical Aviation and Ground Munitions (TAGM) Project Office within the U.S. Army Program Executive Office Missiles and Space.

KBR was awarded the cost-plus, fixed fee task order under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center's (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract. KBR has served the Army project office for the last 22 years.

This task order will build upon the engineering efforts KBR provided via a predecessor contract and will address new and expanding needs for performance, programmatic support and logistics analysis. KBR will research, develop, test, evaluate, integrate, and engineer cutting-edge tactical rocket and missile systems as well as ancillary launchers and test sets.

KBR will support the TAGM Project Office portfolio of weapon systems, including the HELLFIRE missile – the primary air-to-ground precision weapon for rotary wing and unmanned aerial systems for all U.S. services and 18 other nations – and its successor and next generation of aviation-launched, air-to-ground, dual-mode guided missiles, the Joint Air-to-Ground Missile System.

This work will enhance the government's ability to produce more rocket and missile systems; identify and mitigate production issues; efficiently integrate weapons systems onto air, ground, and sea platforms; overcome obsolescence issues; and develop new capabilities. KBR will perform these efforts over the next five years at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama.

"KBR will continue to partner with the Army to develop, field and sustain versatile weapon systems that provide a decisive advantage for the U.S. military and its allies," said Byron Bright, President, KBR Government Solutions U.S. "We are proud to serve the warfighter through this task order."
