KBRwyle wins task order to support US Army aircraft
KBR’s global government services division KBRwyle has received a task order to support the US Army’s cargo helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft.
The US Army's Program Executive Office (PEO) for Aviation has awarded the task order under the defense systems technical area task (DSTAT) contract.
The DSTAT contract supports weapons, survivability / vulnerability, advanced materials, military sensors, energetics, and autonomous systems.
Under the three-year task order, KBRwyle will analyse, research, and develop deliverables, such as critical milestone documents, for PEO Aviation's cargo helicopter and fixed-wing project management offices.
KBRwyle president Byron Bright said: "We are excited to expand our support to the US Army aviation community through this new task order.
"KBRwyle will apply our technical acumen and knowledge of Department of Defense acquisition to assist these project offices in meeting mission requirements for their aircraft."
The programmatic support deal also covers technical assistance and recommendations to improve availability and reliability, as well as reduce support costs for the army's fixed-wing aircraft and CH-47 Chinook Helicopter.
The CH-47 is claimed to be the army's only heavy-lift cargo helicopter supporting critical combat and non-combat operations.
KBRwyle said it has provided programmatic, technical, and logistics support to project offices for PEO Aviation for more than 20 years.
The company also claims it has supported every US Army aircraft and aircraft system, including rotary and fixed-wing aviation solutions and survivability equipment.
