Wyle awarded US Army missile systems support contract

4th June 2013 - 22:14 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Wyle will provide logistics, engineering, technical, programmatic and field engineering services for a variety of missile and close combat weapon systems for the US Army under a new $46.8 million contract announced on 3 June.

The contract will see Wyle perform work to support various versions of the Tube-launched, Optically-tracked, Wire guided missile (TOW), Missile Launch Rocket System (MLRS) and High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS), among others. Wyle has supported nearly all these systems for many years.

In particular, the company will focus on supporting new and revised systems with the goal of lowering fielding and maintenance costs to the army. This will also include developing new fielding processes for the systems, including quality control processes and checklists, to assure systems deployed are optimised for intended purposes.

The award forms part of a task order from from the Reliability Information Analysis Center, and supports the army's Program Executive Office, Missiles and Space; Close Combat Weapon Systems Project Office; and the Precision Fires Rocket and Missile Systems Project Office, all based on Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville. Subcontractors assisting Wyle are Cherokee Nation Red Wing, Eleit and Tec-Masters, all small businesses located in Huntsville.
