KBR (NYSE:KBR) will provide the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Europe District, construction services for a $134 million project that aims to build a radar facility at the Deveselu Air Base in Romania.
The plan includes the transfer of a four-story radar deckhouse structure from the East Coast of the U.S. to form part of the first operational land-based ballistic missile defense system in the world, KBR said Thursday.
The 269-acre Aegis Ashore Missile Defense System will be a land-based variant of the U.S. Navy’s shipboard Aegis Air and Ballistic Missile Defense System.
A goal of the undertaking is to provide the North Atlantic Treaty Organization with security reinforcements in the European region.
Works under the contract are expected to include the establishment of communications, defense and transportation infrastructure that will support the Aegis Ashore.
