March 18, 2024

HOUSTON, March 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has won a new subcontract with Bering Straits Information Technologies (BSIT), a subsidiary of Bering Straits Native Corporation (BSNC), in support of the U.S. Air Force Air Combat Command to provide human performance optimization services at various military bases around the world.

The Human Performance Optimization (HPO) contract is a multi-award IDIQ anticipated to be executed over a span of ten years, extending until March 2034, and was assembled as one of the U.S. Air Force's newest programs to enhance human performance. In support of BSIT and the customer, KBR will provide resiliency and well-being services for military personnel throughout the country and abroad. The contract was specifically designed to optimize physical and cognitive performance, decrease occupational injury rates, accelerate return to duty, and ensure combat readiness across aircrew and warfighter communities. 

"KBR has an exceptional team of brilliant physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists, behavioral health professionals, and other human performance experts. Their expertise shines through, and this win is a testament to their dedication," stated Byron Bright, President of KBR Government Solutions U.S. "We are thrilled to collaborate with Bering Straits Information Technologies and the U.S. Air Force on this crucial mission to elevate military readiness to unprecedented heights, building upon our past successes."

The HPO contract expands upon KBR's more than 50 years of commitment to the wider health and human performance market within NASA and the Department of Defense. This includes its two prime contracts managing the physical and mental readiness of NASA astronauts through the Health and Human Performance contract, as well as supporting the unique resilience and well-being needs of the U.S. Special Operations Forces under its Preservation of Force and Family (POTFF) contract.
