EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 3 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army has given Wyle a $46.8 million contract to provide services for missile and close combat weapon systems.

Services include logistics, engineering, technical, programmatic and field engineering services for various versions of the Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire guided missile, Missile Launch Rocket System and High Mobility Artillery Rocket System and others.

"Wyle, which has supported nearly all these systems for many years, will focus on supporting new and revised systems with the goal of lowering fielding and maintenance costs to the Army," the company said. "The company will develop new fielding processes for the systems, including quality control processes and checklists to assure systems deployed are optimized for intended purposes."

Wyle sub-contractors named its subcontractors for the award as Cherokee Nation Red Wing, Eleit and Tec-Masters Inc.

The contract is in the form of a task order from the Reliability Information Analysis Center, which 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 are based on Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Ala.
