KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today that it has been awarded an initial five-year contract (with options for four additional years) by the Australian Defence Force (ADF) to provide the Capability Support Coordinator (CSC) services for the Canberra Class Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) ships.

The CSC contract will provide configuration management, data management, maintenance monitoring, engineering and supply support services, all within an Asset Management framework to meet the technical integrity, seaworthiness and mission preparedness of the Landing Helicopter Dock ships. KBR has engaged Rolls-Royce Australia Services Pty Limited to work with KBR to deliver these services.

The LHD ships will be the largest vessels ever constructed for the Australian Defence Force (ADF), and will be operated by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). The two Canberra class LHDs, HMAS Canberra and HMAS Adelaide, can each transport over 1,100 troops, 100 armored vehicles and 12 rotary wing aircraft.

KBR has a long history of delivering effective solutions to defense and government agencies worldwide and we are pleased to continue our successful partnership with the Australian Defence Force," said Andy Summers, KBR Infrastructure, Government and Power (IGP) Business Group President.

KBR is a leader in the delivery of major projects to Government, Defence, Resources and Infrastructure clients in Australia, the Asia-Pacific region and around the world. KBR's Defence and Government Services (D&GS) business, which is a part of KBR's Infrastructure, Government and Power business group, is headquartered in Canberra and operates throughout Australia and across the Asia-Pacific region. Expected revenue from the contract will be included in the second quarter 2014 backlog of unfilled orders for the Infrastructure, Government and Power segment. The contract value was not disclosed.
