KBRwyle wins US Army PATRIOT missile system contract

KBRwyle has been awarded a five-year contract worth $133 million by the US Army’s Lower Tier Project Office to provide technical and engineering services to the PATRIOT missile system.

KBRwyle will provide engineering and technical analysis support of the PATRIOT missile system as well as adjunct systems. The Company will also support all engineering changes; modification retrofits; technical upgrades; Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM) improvements; and training development for the US and its allies.

The PATRIOT system provides air and missile defense protection from lower tier threats for ground combat forces and high-value assets, countering short and medium-range tactical ballistic missiles, air-breathing threats, such as fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, and unmanned systems, such as cruise missiles and unmanned air vehicles.

The Army awarded this time-and-materials task order under the US Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) Expedited Professional and Engineering Support Services (EXPRESS) contract. KBRwyle won a seat on the contract in October 2014.

Byron Bright, President, KBR Government Services US, said: “KBRwyle has provided uninterrupted systems engineering support to the PATRIOT missile system for almost four decades.

“We are honoured to carry on our work with the Army to continuously enhance the PATRIOT’s performance to protect U.S. forces and allies against evolving threats.”
