KBR has announced its continued support of Australian Army Aviation mission planning following a contract extension on 14 November.

Under the contract, a team of 20 technical specialists provide Army with a range of services including project management, systems integration, cyber security, training services and operational support.

KBR, along with local Australian industry partners, has supported both the Australian Army and the Royal Australian Navy to align their mission planning capabilities into a single Aviation Mission System.

“KBR’s world leading capabilities developed over almost a decade, are being supported by a very capable Australian supply chain. The capabilities we’re delivering are integral to the nation’s future defence and security," said Nic Maan, Vice President GS APAC.

“The team is highly skilled, and a significant number are also veterans and serving reservists who are also drawing on their military experience to provide the ADF with the capability it requires.”

KBR has been providing mission IT and security solutions support to the Australian Defence Force for more than a decade, including Joint Mission Planning Systems, Portable Flight Planning Systems, data security and training services.

Aircraft supported over this period included MRH-90 Taipan, S-70A Black Hawk, ARH Tiger and CH-47F Chinook.
