“KBR is proud of our nearly two decades of TENA support, promoting range interoperability and flexibility for the U.S. military,” said Byron Bright, KBR President, Government Solutions U.S. and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient. “KBR will continue to use its expertise to develop innovative solutions to fortify and grow the DoD’s T&E capabilities.”

It has operational and developmental T&E processes designed for corporate, government and military organizations. The company has extensive experience evaluating complex systems and technologies ranging from combat vehicles and high-performance aircraft to weapons systems and orbital launch platforms.

Under the task order, KBR will utilize its test and evaluation (T&E) expertise to add and expand additional test range sites into the DoD’s T&E infrastructure. The company’s efforts will streamline and enhance the integration of test and training capabilities for DoD weapons systems.

In addition, KBR’s help develop hardware and software solutions that address the military’s T&E needs.
