KBR has been awarded an engineering task order by the US Air Force (USAF) to support its tactical exploitation of national capabilities (TENCAP) programme.

Under the $539m cost-plus-award-fee task order, KBR will assist with quick prototyping and fielding of systems and advanced technologies for the US military.

KBR’s work under the order involves delivering engineering support services for geolocation tracking, sensor, data fusion and dissemination, as well as unconventional warfare and special operations.

The company’s support services will also cover cyber and spectrum warfare operations, air superiority, command, control and spectrum utilisation, as well as real-time large data analytics and virtualisation.

KBR president and CEO Stuart Bradie said: “Expanding our expertise of air domain awareness to the airforce’s TENCAP programme is an exciting opportunity as we continue to develop and deliver tactical, state-of-the-art solutions to the warfighter community.

“Not only does this contract allow KBR to serve the airforce in a greater capacity, it also aligns with the company’s strategic vision to grow our military portfolio while DoD simultaneously increases its focus on space.”

Work under the contract will take place in Colorado and other global locations over the next five years.

The task order has been awarded via the General Services Administration’s Federal Systems Integration and Management (FEDSIM) Center under the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract vehicle.

In April 2018, KBR’s global government services business KBRwyle secured a new task order to support the TENCAP programme.
