HOUSTON – August 20, 2019 – KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today that it has won a 10-year, $77 million firm fixed price, sole source contract from Honeywell Aerospace to provide logistics services for the U.S. Air Force at Hill Air Force Base Depot in Utah.

KBR will support the secondary power systems for the U.S. Air Force’s F-15, F-16, A-10, B-1B, B-2, C-130, and E-3 aircraft as well as their ground based auxiliary power systems.
