The GS EMEA team is utilizing its established services integrator approach to bring together highly advanced technologies for rapid delivery of new, impactful capabilities – helping overcome the most demanding immediate and future military challenges. This will include the delivery of training, infrastructure, and logistical and technical support of UAS/RPAS amongst more.
KBR is working with companies across the world to address these shared global challenges. Among them is UK based company Evolve Dynamics, who specialize in Unmanned Air Systems and software for public sector services, private security, and defense. Their range of systems, designed with open and modular architecture, offer easy, portable solutions for users, with multiple configuration options to suit the requirement in a wide range of environments.
