KBR’s global Government Services business, KBRwyle, has been awarded a $34.1 million task order to provide analytical and engineering weapons systems support to assist the U.S. Air Force (USAF) with air traffic safety and cyber threats.

Specifically, KBRwyle’s work will support the USAF’s Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Engineering Directorate’s Engineering and Communication Network Branch. This branch provides engineering, integration, technical advice, and direction to all AFLCMC weapon system program offices and other organizations.

KBRwyle will provide a range of services, including system engineering analyses, cybersecurity assessments, cyber resiliency strategy development, and Air Traffic Management / Identification Friend or Foe (ATM/IFF) component testing and certification for DoD and foreign military sales requirements.

KBRwyle will primarily perform this work at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio and Warner Robins Air Force Base in Georgia. The task order award period is 54 months.

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.

KBRwyle has performed ATM / IFF certification analysis support for 30 years. KBRwyle is a leading systems engineering and integration provider to the U.S. military, and has supported more than 135 aircraft platforms.

The DoD IAC program operates as a part of Defense Technical Information Center and provides technical data management and research support for DoD and federal government users.
