EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyle has been awarded a task order valued at $14.9 million to provide analyses of military and commercial developmental semiconductor devices and components for the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.

The Defense Technical Information Center's Reliability Information Analysis Center awarded the task order for work with the laboratory's Sensors Directorate, Aerospace Components and Subsystems Division and the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate's Nanoelectronic Materials Branch.

Wyle will provide independent technology assessments on advanced and emerging semiconductor materials. These research and development analyses will help the Air Force to fully measure the capabilities and potential applications of new technologies.

"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."

The company will also evaluate current qualification practices, seek to improve characterization techniques, perform reliability assessments, and research new semiconductor materials and devices.
