Wyle Conducting AF Medical Research for Transportation, Human Performance; Bill Ercoline Comments

Wyle Inc. has won a $49 million contract to conduct medical research and assess human performance factors for the U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine, the company announced Friday.

The company will work with aeromedical research institutions and subject matter experts for six years under the Quick Reaction Assessments, Studies, Analysis, Evaluation and Research program.

“This is a natural extension of the highly specialized medical support work that Wyle has conducted during the past four decades for combat aircraft pilots and astronauts alike,” said Bill Ercoline, QUASAR program manager for Wyle.

Research work will examine continuing care during patient transportation, preventing and detecting injuries, care during emergencies and human performance across Air Force warfighter operations.

The QUASAR program covers services for the 711th Human Performance Wing of the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory.

Work will occur at Wyle team facilities, Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio and other Defense Department-affiliated installation.

Last week, Science Applications International Corp. announced it would analyze data for the Navy under an operational medicine modeling program.
