KBR Awarded $40 Million in Contracts From US Air Force Space Command
KBR was awarded two contract modifications totaling almost $40 million to upgrade remote tracking stations in the Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN). The U.S. Air Force Space Command (AFSC) Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) awarded these firm fixed price modifications under the existing Hybrid Remote Tracking Station (RTS) Block Change (RBC) Contract. KBR was awarded the RBC Hybrid contract in February 2013.
This work includes replacing existing Automated Remote Tracking Station (ARTS) systems with new RBC systems and integrating these RBC systems with existing antennas and associated subsystems. KBR aims to ensure the successful integration and testing of the overall system, which will ultimately enhance AFSCN operations. AFSCN is a global system that provides command, control, and communications for space vehicles and satellites. It supports telemetry, tracking, and command for U.S. defense space vehicles as well as selected space programs run by NASA and foreign allies.
“These awards highlight KBR’s continued organic growth in important military space markets,” said Byron Bright, President, KBR Government Solutions U.S. “They are a testament to our reputation for delivering quality, dependable and innovative mission-critical services to the government.”
