KBR has been awarded a $47 million, cost-plus-fixed-fee recompete contract by the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) to help U.S. Navy’s F/A-18 and EA-18G Program Office (PMA-265) with foreign military sales (FMS). The company said Monday it will assist the service branch with FMS to Kuwait and Finland.

"We are proud to serve the Navy as it strengthens its relationship with Finland and Kuwait by supporting their national security initiatives," said Byron Bright, president of KBR's government solutions business and a 2020 Wash100 Award recipient. "This win highlights the extraordinary value KBR provides to our customers, time and time again."

Under the recompete, KBR will continue to provide program management, engineering, technical and financial services to PMA-265 to support the F/A-18 air vehicle, subsystems, armament, engine and airborne weapons. KBR will assess program requirements; develop, review and analyze FMS case documentation; and participate in technical reviews. 

In addition, KBR will plan and analyze flight test programs; monitor software progress; develop estimates of financial requirements; and support training systems. The F/A-18 has served as an all-weather fighter and attack aircraft.

Work will occur in Patuxent River, Maryland. The contract includes a one-year base and four option years.
