The Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR) has awarded KBR US Government Solutions a position on the Shore Global C4ISR Installations indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract.

The multiple-award IDIQ has a potential value of $986m and would run until September 2029. It covers an initial five-year ordering period, with an additional five years as an option.

KBR is one of eight companies selected for the contract to install command, control, communications, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems at the navy’s shore-based sites across the world.

KBR US Government Solutions president Byron Bright said: “KBR is ready to ensure that the military has the necessary tools to keep its advantage on physical and virtual battlefields.

“A modern, top-line C4ISR infrastructure is essential to making real-time threat analysis that leads to actionable insight, reducing risk to valuable assets and people.”

The selected companies will have to deliver C4ISR maintenance, modernisation and installation of new systems as part of the contract.

The contract will include services such as the modernisation and decommissioning of existing shore facilities, as well as the installation of integrated C4ISR systems.

It will also cover project and programme management, engineering designs, industrial work, troubleshooting and training services.

The awardees will compete for various task orders during the ordering period. NAVWAR received a total of nine offers for the IDIQ contract.

The remaining seven awardees comprise HII Fleet Support Group, MC Dean, Cambridge International Systems, Serco, Parsons Government Services, SigNet Technologies, and VT Milcom.
