US-based global government services provider KBRwyle has secured a task order for the delivery of analytical and engineering weapons systems support to assist the US Air Force (USAF) with air traffic safety and cyber threats.
The current cost-plus-fixed-fee task order has been awarded by the USAF under the US Department of Defense’s (DoD) Information Analysis Center’s (IAC) Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DSTAT) multi-award contract.
Under the terms of the new $34.1m task order, KBRwyle will be responsible for providing support to the USAF’s Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Engineering Directorate’s Engineering and Communication Network Branch.
The branch offers engineering, integration, technical advice and direction to all AFLCMC weapon system programme offices and other organisations.
As part of the project, KBRwyle will also deliver system engineering analyses, cybersecurity assessments, cyber resiliency strategy development, and air traffic management/identification friend or foe (ATM/IFF) component testing and certification for the DoD and foreign military sales requirements.
KBRwyle president Byron Bright said: “From defending against cyber threats to ensuring air traffic safety, KBRwyle is committed to supporting the air force through this new contract.
“Our depth of technical and programmatic experience and engineering expertise makes us uniquely qualified to fill this role.”
Work on the project, which will continue for a period of 54 months, will be carried out at the USAF’s Wright Patterson Air Force Base (AFB) in Ohio and the Warner Robins AFB in Georgia.
The company has so far supported more than 135 aircraft platforms.
