KBR Government Solutions US president Byron Bright said: “KBR is proud to support NSWC Crane and NAVAIR with this new contract.

“With this win, our advanced R&D, modelling and simulation, and logistics and engineering experts will support the development of the next generation of advanced ISR&T systems for the Navy while ensuring the sustainment of legacy systems until they reach sundown.”

KBR has played a role in several E-2C upgrade projects and programmes, as well as the E-2D’s development and deployment.

The company has been supporting the E-2 programme for the past three decades.

Built by Northrop Grumman, the carrier-based E-2 aircraft is designed to offer early detection of adversary threats and provide a response.
