EL SEGUNDO, Calif.—Wyle has been awarded a task order valued at $4.9 million from the Defense Technical Information Center's Reliability Information Analysis Center to provide weaponeering and stores planning test and evaluation for the U.S. Navy.
Wyle will provide reliability, maintainability, quality, supportability, and interoperability analysis, systems engineering activities, test plan preparation, automated and manual test case development, test execution, test metrics collection, and test reporting to the Naval Air Systems Command's Strike Planning and Execution Systems program at Patuxent River, Md.
"Wyle will reduce test-cycle time, increase test coverage through test automation, and reduce costs by identifying any system deficiencies early-on in a product's life cycle," said Julie Randall, a software and IT solutions manager in Wyle's Aerospace Group.
The government requires that future versions of U.S. Navy and foreign military sales weaponeering and stores planning products used to automate fleet flight clearances undergo reliability analysis, systems engineering, and test and evaluation from an independent source.
Wyle will evaluate needs, recommending enhancements to weaponeering and stores planning architecture and capabilities to satisfy those needs, and delineating the roadmap to reflect those changes.
The company's efforts include conducting weaponeering and stores planning requirements analysis and evaluating design criteria to increase product reliability and maintainability, in addition to researching and developing a new test automation framework. Wyle's engineers and analysts will perform detailed quantitative investigations and analyses addressing requirements testability, reliability, quality, interoperability and sustainability to reduce the time to get data to users.
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.
