KBR Selected For Anti-Terrorism Work On Naval Contract

Houston, TX - KBR recently announced it has been selected by the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command to compete for future task orders under the Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (ATFP) Ashore program contract vehicle. KBR will be part of a Lockheed Martin-led team. Three other companies were also selected to compete for tasks throughout the contract period. KBR will be providing the full range of design-build services for facilities infrastructure to the Lockheed Martin team.

The ATFP is a firm fixed price, indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract that covers one base year and four option years. The four companies selected will compete for tasks which, all totaled, have a contract ceiling of up to $500M over the five-year time period.

The scope of work will include the design, procurement, installation, integration and sustainment of the ATFP equipment at Navy installations worldwide. KBR's role will be associated with planning, designing, modifying and constructing civil infrastructure to support the ATFP program.

"KBR looks forward to continuing its decades long support of the Navy's mission in the critical area of security. Additionally, we look forward to working with Lockheed Martin, recognized as principal systems integrator for the Department of Defense," said Richard Graves, Vice President of KBR's Design and Construction unit.

The ATFP Ashore Program aims to improve the security posture at Navy shore installations worldwide. ATFP equipment facilitates the detection, delay, deterrence, assessment and response to terrorist events.

Three major types of equipment are included as part of the ATFP Ashore program; Physical Security Systems, Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I), and Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN/Emergency Management) threat reduction. The primary ATFP program goal is to provide a centrally managed program to assist Navy shore installations in obtaining the best possible equipment, systems and services that meet Navy ATFP program requirements.
