Wyle wins $39.9 million award to provide engineering analyses for the U.S. Army

Wyle has been awarded a task order worth $39.9 million to provide engineering and logistical analyses to improve the reliability of U.S. Army ground combat systems, tactical wheeled vehicles, associated subsystems and related test equipment and infrastructure while lowering life cycle costs.

Under the award from the Defense Technical Information Center’s Reliability Information Analysis Center, Wyle will provide support to the Program Executive Office for Combat Support and Combat Service Support and the Program Executive Office for Ground Combat Systems, both located at the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command in Warren, Mich.

Wyle will conduct detailed quantitative investigations and analyses of maintenance practices, as well as logistics structured reliability and maintainability engineering to refine and improve sustainability initiatives.

The effort will include performing various engineering analyses to support the development, integration, sustainment, and demilitarization of ground combat systems, combat service support systems, tactical wheeled vehicles and force projection equipment including various ground vehicles.

“Wyle experts have extensive experience in test and evaluation systems engineering, information technology, life cycle management, life sciences research, science and mission integration, testing services, and design and construction of advanced test equipment,” said Dan Gensch, Wyle’s reliability engineering sector manager.

Using its expertise and experience in structural testing to verify design integrity, evaluating risk or demonstrating reliability, Wyle will perform some of the work at company facilities capable of providing both natural and induced environments with some of the largest climatic test chambers and vibration systems commercially available.

In addition to the U.S. Army’s Tank Automotive Command Life Cycle Management Command, Wyle provides analysis and engineering for numerous other DoD programs which have included investigating and analyzing equipment problems and wide range analyses relating to maintenance, logistics and reliability issues.
