HOUSTON, Aug. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has been awarded a $41 million contract by the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) to provide engineering, technical, operational, test and logistics services for its Surface/Aviation Interoperability Laboratory (SAIL).
SAIL essentially functions as an operational U.S. Navy ship that serves as a critical military test asset. This shore-based lab is equipped with combat systems found on U.S. Navy aircraft carriers, guided missile destroyers and littoral combat ships, and utilizes these systems to test and evaluate aircraft and shipboard systems and the associated interface between them.
Under this cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, KBR's services will support SAIL efforts related to the Navy and other U.S. military branches' research and development (R&D) programs; systems integration; simulation and stimulation systems development, test planning and conduct; command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems interoperability; and technology demonstration programs.
KBR will primarily perform this work at Naval Air Station (NAS) Patuxent River in Maryland. This indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract's period of performance begins in August and runs through July 2024.
"KBR fully understands that SAIL is a critical node in the Navy's testing operations," said Byron Bright, KBR President, Government Solutions U.S. "We have supported this unique, world-class laboratory since its inception 15 years ago and will continue to work alongside the Navy to make sure systems are tested and ready for the fleet."
KBR is a leading systems engineering and integration (SE&I) provider to U.S. Naval aviation and U.S. Army aviation. Its domain expertise spans over 40 years during which it has supported more than 35 Navy, Army and Air Force aircraft programs.
