Wyle wins $24 million engineering contract from Naval Air Systems Command

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Wyle has been awarded a $24 million contract to provide specialized engineering expertise for the Naval Air Systems Command’s Electromagnetic Environmental Effects Division.

Wyle’s efforts will include electromagnetic environmental effects systems engineering and related acquisition support, and test and evaluation of aircraft, weapons, support equipment, training and avionics systems.

Wyle will also perform fleet support services related to electromagnetic environmental effects for naval aviation units and their supporting activities under the Air Systems Electromagnetic Interference Corrective Action Program, as well as support for electromagnetic environmental effects research, science and technology efforts.

The work will assist the Electromagnetic Environmental Effects and Integrated Combat Environments divisions to ensure cradle-to-grave systems electromagnetic compatibility in all Naval Air Systems Command aircraft, weapon and ground support systems for the Navy fleet.

“This award sustains an important incumbency in a very specialized field and is a vote of confidence reaffirming the significant contributions Wyle has made in the field of aviation test and evaluation; clearly a principal differentiator,” said Stu Ashton, a Wyle vice president in its Aerospace Group. “Wyle’s delivery of unmatched systems engineering services on this contract will validate that systems meet their test specifications and warfighter requirements.”

Wyle’s work, which began in March 2013, will be performed primarily at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md.

Wyle, a privately held company, is a leading provider of high tech aerospace engineering and information technology services to the federal government on long-term outsourcing contracts. The company also provides test and evaluation of aircraft, weapon systems, networks, and other government assets; and other engineering services to the aerospace, defense, and nuclear power industries. For decades, Wyle has provided medical services to NASA’s astronaut corps during space flights.
