will continue its support of Australian Army Aviation mission planning following a contract extension announced on 14 December. The extension builds on almost a decade of mission planning partnerships with Army Aviation.

Mission planning systems draw on highly efficient software and supporting technologies to enable detailed, integrated planning, precise execution and post-mission debriefing. Under the contract, a team of 20 highly skilled technical specialists provide Army with a range of services including project management, systems integration, cyber security, training services and operational support.

KBR, along with local Australian industry partners, has supported both the Australian Army and the Royal Australian Navy to align their mission planning capabilities into a single Aviation Mission System. KBR has been providing mission IT and security solutions support to the Australian Defence Force for more than a decade, including Joint Mission Planning Systems, Portable Flight Planning Systems, data security and training services. Aircraft supported over this period included MRH-90 Taipan, S-70A Black Hawk, ARH Tiger and CH-47F Chinook.

Vice President GS APAC Nic Maan said, “KBR’s world leading capabilities developed over almost a decade are being supported by a very capable Australian supply chain. The capabilities we’re delivering are integral to the nation’s future defence and security. The team is highly skilled. A significant number are also veterans and serving reservists who are also drawing on their military experience to provide the ADF with the capability it requires.”
