Scientific Management Associates has contracted U.S.-based KBR for support in providing technical training support services to the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) at HMAS Cerberus, Victoria.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will use their experience in designing and delivering live, virtual and constructive training environments and training management systems.

KBR said this work is expected to be performed over a five year period.

Rob Hawketts, vice president of KBR government services Asia Pacific said: “KBR is excited to work with SMA and the RAN to provide engaging and effective technical and trade training with the goal of improving job readiness while minimizing the burden on the Fleet.”

“This award builds on our recent success of the Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) sustainment training contract and demonstrates customer confidence in our ability to deliver innovative training solutions as a collaborative partner,” Hawketts continued.
Revenue associated with this project is undisclosed and will be booked into backlog of unfilled orders for KBR’s Government Services business segment as task orders under the contract are awarded.
