The US Department of Defense (DoD) has selected global government services business KBRwyle as one of the prime contractors on the $900m Joint Test and Evaluation (JT&E) contract.
Under the ten-year deal, the company will be responsible for providing rapid solutions for the problems identified through the DoD’s JT&E programme.
A total of six prime contractors have been selected by the US Army Corps of Engineers Engineering Research and Development Center for the cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract.
The company aims to find new ways that would help US warfighters to successfully carry out their missions, using current equipment and processes.
Furthermore, KBRwyle will offer additional programme support, which will include test and evaluation, specialised engineering, cybersecurity, and intelligence.
KBR US Government Services president Byron Bright said: “We are honoured to be selected as a prime on this contract again and take seriously the confidence exhibited by the DoD in choosing us to continue on this important programme.
“We will continue to work with the JT&E Program Office to develop rapid and effective solutions to complex warfighter issues with professionalism, rigour, and innovation.”
The DoD’s JT&E programme combines multiple military services to help enhance the joint interoperability of systems, technical and operational concepts, and system performance.
The programme also increases the validation of testing methodologies, models, simulations and test beds, in addition to developing new tactics, techniques, and procedures and rigorously measuring the extent to which their use can improve operational outcomes.
In 2007, KBRwyle won a seat on the previous US JT&E programme.
