Defense contractor KBR has been awarded a $207 million task order for advanced work on the Phased Array Tracking Radar to Intercept on Target (PATRIOT) missile defense system.

Most of the work on the five-year contract will be performed at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville and at KBR’s Huntsville offices.

Under this task order, Texas-based KBR will work on modeling and simulation for surveillance, guidance, fire contract, engagement decision logic and other elements, using studies, performance runs and live fire to verify performance.

“KBR has provided uninterrupted systems engineering support to the PATRIOT missile system for decades,” said Byron Bright, KBR government solutions president. “We’re proud to continue that support and to further our shared goal of protecting U.S. forces and allies through enhancing the capabilities of the PATRIOT missile system.”
