KBRwyle has secured two contracts from the US Air Force Installation Contracting Agency (AFICA) to continue providing support to F-35 advanced stealth fighter jet and other airforce aircraft.
The contracts are worth a combined $96.5m and were awarded under the US DoD Information Analysis Center’s (IAC) Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DSTAT) multi-award contract.
The first contract is a $41.9m defence systems task order. KBRwyle will provide analysis, research, and product support for aeronautical systems to the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC).
Work includes engineering, airworthiness, safety analyses, risk management, system security and assurance for aircraft in AFLCMC’s portfolio.
Contracted work will be performed to enable ‘weapon systems support for infrared countermeasures, cyber resiliency and survivability and vulnerability analyses’ of modern stealth and materials technology.
KBRwyle is required to provide services such as detailed acquisition strategy development, sustainment, engineering, cybersecurity, strategic planning, and business process improvement to the AFLCMC Special Projects Office.

The $54.6m task order also involves assisting the airforce’s efforts to establish its F-35 Hybrid Product Support Integrator organisation, F-35A Fleet Management Office, and other new programmes.
Both contracts have a performance period of 42 months. The company will carry out the work at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, US.
KBRwyle, which is KBR’s global government services, secured a seat on the DSTAT contract in June 2014.
KBR Government Services US president Byron Bright said: “KBRwyle is honoured to partner with the AFLCMC in managing weapons systems from inception to sundown. Through these task orders, KBRwyle will continue to provide our technical expertise across the centre.”
The company supports the US Military’s fixed wing, rotary wing, fast jet, unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and avionics systems to improve mission capability and optimise lifecycle costs.
Last month, the firm won a cybersecurity task order to develop an explainable artificial intelligence (XAI) approach to data analysis and exploitation for the US Air Force Research Laboratory 711th Human Performance Wing.
