NASA selects KBR to study commercial enterprise in low-Earth orbit

NASA selected Houston-based KBR to study the future of commercial enterprise in low-Earth orbit. KBR is one of 13 companies to receive a contract.

KBRwyle, the government services business of KBR, will analyze how to foster demand for commercial and government use of low-Earth orbit — and how to make this portion of space affordable.

It will also study the viability of habitable platforms, including the space station and separate free-flying structures.
