KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today its global Government Services business, KBRwyle, has won a seat on the NASA Research, Engineering, Mission Integration Services (REMIS) contract to provide research and engineering products and services for the International Space Station (ISS). NASA's Johnson Space Center awarded this contract, which has a five-year base period and a two-year option with a maximum ceiling value of $500 million.
Under this multi-award contract, KBRwyle will have the opportunity to compete on task orders to support NASA's ISS Program and potentially other NASA organizations and federal government agencies.
KBRwyle may provide spaceflight and ground hardware and software development, engineering function sustainment, engineering services, payload facility integration assistance, and research mission integration and operations services. The company will primarily perform this work at NASA's Johnson Space Center.
"KBRwyle has a history of solving the challenges of human spaceflight, pioneering breakthroughs in microgravity research, and providing innovative engineering and technical solutions to NASA," said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO. "We are proud to continue this legacy supporting NASA and the International Space Station."
KBRwyle has supported the ISS for more than 16 years. As the number one life sciences provider to NASA, the company has been engaged in a broad range of human spaceflight activities for NASA for almost five decades. KBRwyle has worked with every U.S. astronaut since 1968, including record-breaking astronaut Dr. Peggy Whitson. The company has also supported 135 Space Shuttle missions and seven NASA human spaceflight programs beginning with Gemini.
Expected revenue associated with this project will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR's Government Services Business Segment as task orders are awarded.
