KBR’s Government Business to Help NASA Build Satellite Ranging Stations

KBR‘s government services arm has received a potential $48M contract to build, deploy and commission satellite laser ranging stations for a NASA project aiming to sustain a global network of space geodetic technique instruments.

The agency said Friday KBRwyle will manufacture up to six stations under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract in support of the Space Geodesy Project.

Work will involve completing and deploying two stations currently in development at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

The contract has a 30-day phase-in period slated to commence Sept. 24, followed by a seven-year ordering period that will begin on Oct. 24.

KBRwyle will perform services at its own facilities and various sites belonging to NASA and agency partners.
