EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Wyle, a U.S. engineering firm, has been given a $14.9 million Air Force task order for analyses of military and commercial developmental semiconductor devices.
The work will be performed for the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, the company said.
Under the award, Wyle will provide technology assessments on advanced and emerging semiconductor materials to help the Air Force measure the capabilities and potential applications of new technologies. It will also collaborate with the National High Reliability Electronics Virtual Center and other device research organizations to forecast emerging electronic technologies and opportunities.
"Wyle will team with aeronautical systems experts at the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory," said Roger Wood, Wyle's program manager. "This three-year contract will allow us to provide leading-edge solutions to the Air Force's current aeronautical challenges and will assist them in gaining a greater knowledge of device operation and degradation."
