“Customers rely on KBR to pioneer advances in human performance, space medicine and earth science.”

We are engaged in a broad range of human health and performance activities that vary from human spaceflight and occupational medicine to extreme aviation testing. Our work includes developing specialized hardware to assess fitness and conducting extensive performance and cognition testing — in extreme environments like microgravity, underwater submersion and high acceleration. And our scientists, physicians, technicians and operations personnel conduct scientific research and applied studies ranging from radiation biophysics and toxicology to immunology, neurosciences and nutrition. We understand the issues associated with these conditions and develop countermeasures to minimize human risk.
