EL SEGUNDO, Calif., March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyle has teamed with Northrop Grumman to perform two task orders valued at nearly $2 million under the A-10 Thunderbolt Life-cycle Program Support indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract.
Wyle will perform critical systems component analysis on both task orders. Rowan Catalyst, Inc. is also a subcontractor on the work.
This first task order is designed to ensure that the A-10's operational safety, suitability and effectiveness program is achieved and maintained by performing component analysis of critical systems and providing solutions for increased system reliability, safety, aircraft availability, and reducing maintenance requirements and man-hours.

This effort will help align the A-10 program with the latest requirements from the joint aeronautical logistics commanders.

"We're ready to assist the A-10 community and the U.S. Air Force with working these two critical tasks."
