KBR unit wins $3bn US project contract

KBR, a global provider of differentiated professional services and technologies, said its global Government Services business, KBRwyle,  is one of the winning bidders on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Professional and Technical (ProTech) Satellite Domain contract in support of NOAA's satellite activities worldwide.

The contract has a two-year base period and three one-year options, and belongs to the ProTech program's suite of contracts that shares a maximum ceiling value of $3 billion, according to a statement from KBR.

In addition to NOAA, the company is also a key provider of satellite mission life cycle services for a variety of technically complex US Government programs, including providing ground systems and mission operations to Nasa, the US Air Force, and the US Geological Survey, and has helped pioneer space engineering and operations for more than 65 years, it stated.

Under the ProTech contract, KBRwyle will have the opportunity to compete on task orders to support NOAA's satellite requirements and missions, including assisting in managing environmental data that result from those missions.

"We are proud to partner with NOAA in its endeavor to gather data to monitor and understand our ever-changing planet," said Stuart Bradie, KBR president and CEO.

"KBRwyle will draw upon our heritage of excellent scientific, engineering, and operations support to assist NOAA in meeting its most complex challenges," he noted.

According to hiom, KBRwyle has supported NOAA for more than two decades, including providing a broad spectrum of weather forecasting and tracking services, scientific computing, as well as engineering and operations support for satellite communications, ground systems, and data services.

Revenue associated with this project will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Government Services Business Segment as task orders are awarded throughout the contract period, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
