·5 min read

KBR to support modeling and simulation, as well as test efforts to analyze overall performance and develop recommendations to enhance the capabilities of PATRIOT system.

HOUSTON, Feb. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- KBR (NYSE: KBR) was awarded a $207 million task order to conduct multi-disciplined analyses and develop recommendations to enhance the capabilities of the Phased Array Tracking Radar to Intercept on Target (PATRIOT) missile defense system. KBR was awarded this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center's (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract vehicle designed to develop and create new knowledge for the DoD.

"KBR has provided uninterrupted systems engineering support to the PATRIOT missile system for decades," said Byron Bright, KBR Government Solutions President. "We're proud to continue that support and to further our shared goal of protecting U.S. forces and allies through enhancing the capabilities of the PATRIOT missile system."

PATRIOT is a critical component of our nation's air and missile defense. PATRIOT protects ground forces and high-value assets by countering a variety of enemy short- and medium-range tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and unmanned air vehicles (UAV).

Under the scope of this task order, KBR will support modeling and simulation efforts for surveillance, guidance, fire control, engagement decision logic, interceptor flyout, seeker, and warhead performance to analyze overall system performance effectively and efficiently. KBR will perform extensive and complex analyses; studies; performance runs; actual live fire, search, track, and flight test missions; hardware-in-the-loop testing; and development and test activities to validate and verify full ground and missile system performance.

KBR was awarded this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center's (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle. These DoD IAC MAC task orders (TOs) are awarded by the U.S. Air Force's 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the DTIC repository and the R&D and S&T community. Work on the five-year contract will be primarily performed at Redstone Arsenal Government facilities and KBR offices in Huntsville, Alabama.

KBR delivers mission critical, trusted services that help the U.S. maintain its unique and indispensable battlespace advantage. For more than four decades, KBR has continuously provided mission-critical technical and engineering services for the PATRIOT missile system. In addition, KBR supports several other related military critical air and missile defense systems, including the Cruise Missile Defense System (CMDS), Counter-Rockets, Artillery, and Mortar System (C-RAM), and Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System (THAAD).
