Wyle to Analyze, Develop MRAP Program Databases; John Mikelaitis Comments

Wyle will help transition logistics of the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle program from a joint program to each of the service branches on an individual level, the company said Thursday.

The company won a $22 million engineering and development contract to conduct reliability and logistics analyses and develop modeling and report databases.

New research and analysis tools will help examine historical program data, the company said.

“Wyle has worked closely with this program for years,“ said John Mikelaitis, Wyle's senior manager for life cycle management. “These efforts provide an opportunity to build on that experience and take our support of this vital vehicle to the next level.“

U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps forces use the MRAP vehicles to survive attacks and ambushes from improvised explosive devices.
