WyleLogoWyle has won a $850,000 contract to revamp the 1960s-era life rafts the U.S. Air Force uses on its Lockheed Martin C-5 transport aircraft.

The company will research, engineer technical data package and reverse-engineer the raft system’s parts at the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center in Robins Air Force Base, Ga., Wyle said Thursday.

Martin Kosiek, Wyle’s vice president for the aerospace group said that Wyle employees will assess the functions and requirements of the life rafts and decide on an offering for the entire system which is meant to have improved maintenance and longevity.

The raft system can accommodate up to 25 people, Wyle said.

The work will include engineering support to maintain the rafts.
