Wyle to provide engineering analyses for U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Wyle has been awarded a contract worth $4.6 million to provide engineering analyses for the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology’s Department of Systems Engineering and Management located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.

The award was made by the Defense Technical Information Center in collaboration with the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Reliability Information Analysis Center.

Wyle will focus on cost factors influencing the life cycle cost of military aircraft systems that utilize composite materials. The Air Force has set composites affordability as a critical initiative and one key Wyle research area includes delamination as a mode of failure in composites materials.

“Wyle has extensive experience in providing engineering analyses using structured engineering and testing approaches in the development, implementation and execution of logistic, sustainment and acquisition,” said Roger Wood, Wyle’s program manager.

The company also will assess operation and support/sustainment strategies based on projected system and subsystem reliability including analysis of data such as meantime between repair, meantime between failure rates, and level of availability. Wyle experts will use this data to provide detailed investigations and analyses to address reliability, modes and patterns, safety/risk areas and support issues, such as parts obsolescence and training.

“Wyle is eager to work with the U.S. Air Force’s Institute of Technology,” said Wood. “Our company culture will allow us to produce meaningful contributions at this multi-disciplinary academic organization to achieve integrated solutions to U.S. Air Force challenges.”
