KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today that its global Government Services business, KBRwyle, has been awarded a $69.3 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide engineering and technical services to the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD).
Under this contract awarded by NAWCAD, KBRwyle will be responsible for the engineering, installation and maintenance of the Light Airborne Multipurpose System (LAMPS) MK III Datalink. The Navy uses this datalink to transmit command and control, radar, and acoustic information between H-60 Seahawk helicopters and surface ships. This data provides naval forces an expanded, real-time picture of the battlespace.
KBRwyle will provide full life cycle support to this multi-mission datalink system, including systems integration, test and evaluation, in-service engineering, logistics, repair and validation, training, lab maintenance, and technical management.
KBRwyle will also assist NAWCAD in upgrading the LAMPS-equipped fleet with the high-speed Ku-band link, which will allow for faster data transfer. This contract provides NAWCAD with continuous, uninterrupted installation support for the next several years.
"KBRwyle will continue to assist the Navy in sharpening its picture of the battlespace through this new contract," said Byron Bright, KBRwyle President. "We have supported LAMPS since 1982 and will continue to play a role in its evolution through our innovative and dependable engineering and technical expertise."
KBRwyle will primarily perform this work in St. Inigoes, Maryland and various other shore and ship locations. The period of performance for this single-award contract is 60 months.
Expected revenue will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Government Services business segment as task orders are awarded throughout the contract period.
