KBR has been awarded a $165 million task order from the U.S. Army for engineering services on tactical missiles with work slated to be performed at KBR facilities at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville.
The Tactical Aviation and Ground Munitions project will build on work KBR has performed over the past 22 years.
This specific project includes research, development, testing, evaluation, integration and engineering of cutting-edge tactical rocket and missile systems, as well as ancillary launchers and test sets for TAGM projects including the Hellfire missile.
The Hellfire missile is the primary air-to-ground precision weapon for rotary-winged and unmanned aerial systems in the U.S. military and 18 other countries.
“This work will enhance the government’s ability to produce more rocket and missile systems; identify and mitigate production issues; efficiently integrate weapons systems onto air, ground and sea platforms; overcome obsolescence issues; and develop new capabilities,” the company said in a press release, adding, “KBR will perform these efforts over the next five years at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama.”
