HOUSTON, Texas. KBR announced that it has been awarded a $33.5 million task order from the U.S. Air Force (USAF) to provide product and life cycle analysis of common avionics for the 638th Supply Chain Management Group (SCMG) and the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC).
The SCMG and AFLCMC manage all common avionics for the USAF, including the Global Positioning System (GPS), precision attack systems, ground radio communications, RQ-4 Global Hawk, B-52 Stratofortress, and the E-3 airborne warning and control systems.
KBR was awarded this task order under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center's (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract by the USAF Installation Contracting Center. KBR has supported the mission of the DoD research and development community through various predecessor DoD IAC contracts since 2005.
Under the cost-plus-fixed-fee task order, KBR intends to identify and address diminishing manufacturing sources and material shortages, and provide software analysis and information assurance. KBR will also aim to assist with reliability, maintainability, quality, supportability and interoperability issues with avionic systems, line replaceable units, and shop replaceable units.
