Wyle will expand its operational support to the USAF Space Command in Colorado Springs, Colo. as a result of its being a key partner to Odyssey Systems Consulting Group, one of four awardees for the USAF Space Command’s Contract for Space and Missile Capabilities program.

“This award is a logical extension of the services and solutions Wyle provides to Space Command,” said Tom Anderson, group president of Wyle Information Systems. “Wyle’s long-standing partnership with the Air Force will now be expanded through support on the Contract for Space and Missile Capabilities contract. Our primary role on this contract will be the development of cyber architectures, formal cyber training and cyber protection of our national assets.”

Wyle has supported Space Command through its Technical Services and Space Operational Support contract at the Space Innovation and Development Center located at Schriever Air Force Base. The company also has supported Space Command in a variety of other contracts.

The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract with Odyssey Systems Consulting Group supports the Space Command at Peterson Air Force Base, and consists of advisory and assistance services; management and professional services; studies, analyses and evaluations; and engineering and technical services.

Future task orders within the $450 million contract will be competed among four teams. The new contract is a replacement for Space Command’s Contracted Advisory and Assistance Services and Engineering and Technical Assistance contract which ends on Sept. 30.

Wyle, a privately held company, is a leading provider of high tech aerospace engineering and information technology services to the federal government on long-term outsourcing contracts. The company also provides test and evaluation of aircraft, weapon systems, networks, and other government assets; and other engineering services to the aerospace, defense, and nuclear power industries.
