KBRwyle wins AFICA engineering support contract

KBRwyle has been awarded a $36.5 million task order by the US Air Force Installation Contracting Agency (AFICA) to provide sustainment engineering support to the 414th Supply Chain Management Squadron.

KBRwyle’s work will support the LGM-30G Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) and all associated ground and support equipment, ensuring these missile systems remain available to the US Air Force warfighter.

The contract will see the Company perform scientific and technical analyses and make recommendations related to Reliability, Maintainability, Quality, Supportability, and Interoperability (RMQSI), nuclear surety, safety, life cycle management, failure testing, and diminishing manufacturing sourcing issues. It will also conduct research and development on flaw detection and corrosion resistance.

The US Air Force awarded the cost-plus-fixed-fee task order under the DoD’s Information Analysis Center’s (IAC) Defense Systems Technical Area Task (DSTAT) multi-award contract. KBRwyle won a seat on the DSTAT contract in June 2014.

Byron Bright, President, KBR Government Services US, said: “KBRwyle has helped the military for decades to develop, field and sustain missile and space systems that are essential to national security. Our missile expertise combined with our sustainment engineering capabilities will enable us to assist the 414th Supply Chain Management Squadron in meeting its mission.”
