KBRwyle president Byron Bright said: “KBRwyle will work with our outstanding team of subcontractors to rapidly place leading-edge national capabilities and technologies into the hands of the warfighter through this new contract.

“This award provides us another opportunity to partner with the US military to bolster national security.

“It is a testament to our reputation for delivering quality, dependable and innovative government services.”

KBRwyle will be responsible for providing the airforce with a complete range of systems engineering services to support the rapid prototype development and integration of national-level space, intelligence, as well as air and missile defence capabilities.

The company will assist the USAF in carrying out cost-effective research, development, as well as test and evaluation of emerging technologies, materials and manufacturing processes.

The project is expected to enhance the military systems’ functionality and capability, while reducing the timeline from prototyping to launching fully operational systems.

Work on the project will be primarily carried out by KBRwyle at the USAF’s Schriever Air Force Base (AFB) in Colorado.
