Science and Space Operations

KBRwyle's science and space operations services cover a broad spectrum of disciplines including life sciences with an emphasis on extreme environments; health and human performance for civilian and defense agencies; spacecraft and ground systems mission support; and monitoring seismic activity and biological, chemical, and nuclear threats.

Since 1968, we have continuously supported every U.S. astronaut.  Our services include administering all aspects of astronaut physical and psychological health and providing critical training to help astronauts prepare for International Space Station (ISS) missions.  Our expertise is recognized throughout the world where we also serve as a leading provider to the European Space Agency's Space Medicine Office.  In addition to our work with astronauts for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), we also conduct applied biomedical research, develop and operate biomedical flight hardware, and manage more than ten NASA laboratories.

KBRwyle is also a key provider of ground systems, mission operations, and safety and mission assurance services to NASA, the U.S. Air Force, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).  Since the 1950s, we have serviced over 700 spacecraft.  Our services cover all phases of the satellite mission life cycle including concept studies, development, implementation, operations, sustainment and decommissioning.  KBRwyle has provided technical services on ground-breaking projects including the Hubble Space Telescope, Cassini spacecraft, and Mars Global Surveyor.

KBRwyle advances in science, space technology, and safety have pushed the boundaries of what can be done and where, for defense, civilian, and commercial customers. While some companies pride themselves on responding to change, KBRwyle drives it.
