Wyle has been awarded a contract worth $46.8 million to provide logistics, engineering, technical, programmatic and field engineering services for a variety of missile and close combat weapon systems for the U.S. Army.
The award, in a task order from the Reliability Information Analysis Center, 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, Al.
Systems to be supported by Wyle include 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.

Among many related tasks, 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.
