Wyle providing JSF support

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Dec. 16 (UPI) -- The U.S. government has given Wyle of California a $318 million, five-year task order to support the Joint Strike Fighter Program Office.

Specific tasks under the order will include strategic planning for technology programs and activities, concept development and requirements analysis, system design, engineering and integration, test and evaluation, integrated logistics support, Foreign Military Sales, acquisition and life cycle management, all critical to the development of the F-35 and the mission of the program office.


"There is nothing more rewarding than being competitively selected to support the most exciting, most technologically advanced aircraft of tomorrow," said Donna Lowe, Wyle's vice president for tactical programs and the task order project manager. "Ultimately, it's ensuring that the warfighter is ready and able to complete their mission."

Wyle said it will continue assisting the JSF Program, ensuring the aircraft manufacturing team meets government requirements and required timelines to successfully deploy the F-35 air system to the warfighter. Its technical professionals, subcontractors and teaming partners will support program management of the next generation strike fighter's lifecycle, spanning development, test and evaluation, low rate and full rate production, and operations and sustainment.


Wyle, a privately held company, said the majority of the work under the task order will be performed in Arlington, Va., with field support at the Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md.; Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.; Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio; Eglin Air Force Base, Fla.; and Fort Worth, Texas, where the F-35 air system is being developed and produced.

Subcontractors on the Wyle team are Dynamic Research, Inc; Ausley Associates, Inc.; Jahn-Corporation; Whitney, Bradley & Brown; General Dynamics, Information Technology; Science Applications International Corporation. Teaming partners are Decisioneering, LLC; First Principles, Inc.; PAL Services, Inc.; Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc.; and ITT Corp.
