KBR has been awarded a five-year, $539 million cost-plus-award-fee engineering task order to support rapid prototyping and fielding of systems for the U.S. Air Force's Tactical Exploitation of National Capabilities (TENCAP) program, the company reported on Thursday. The Air Force's program aims to support operational requirements by applying national space capabilities at the tactical level.

"Expanding our expertise of air domain awareness to the Air Force's TENCAP program is an exciting opportunity as we continue to develop and deliver tactical, state-of-the-art solutions to the warfighter community,“ said Stuart Bradie, KBR president and CEO.

As part of the task order, KBR will help the Air Force leverage air, space and cyber capabilities to provide the military with agile technologies and systems. The company will also work to deliver engineering services to support geolocation tracking. 

In addition, KBR will support sensor, data fusion and dissemination; unconventional warfare and special operations; situational awareness; cyber and spectrum warfare operations; air superiority; command, control and spectrum utilization; and real-time large data analytics and virtualization.

“Not only does this contract allow KBR to serve the Air Force in a greater capacity, it also aligns with the company's strategic vision to grow our military portfolio while DoD simultaneously increases its focus on space," Bradie added.  

The Air Force awarded the task order through the General Services Administration's (GSA) Federal Systems Integration and Management (FEDSIM) Center using the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) contract.

KBR has supported the TENCAP program since 2018. In April of the said year, KBR received a $32.3 million task order to help the Air Force advance air and space systems operational capability and efficiency. 

KBR has worked to deliver a full spectrum of systems engineering services for the rapid prototype development and integration of national-level space, intelligence and air and missile defense capabilities.
