By George Seffers

Wyle Laboratories Incorporated, Huntsville, Alabama, has recently been awarded several contracts. The first is a $49,181,949 cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity requirements contract to provide research and analysis to replace existing handheld biometrics, which currently lack the required reliability, quality, and supportability. Research will provide biometric system assessments, technology, and architecture enhancements, and prototype development to enable information fusion. Specific deliverables include: analysis of alternatives, configuration analysis, sensitive site exploitation, and tagging/tracking location reports. The second is a $47,595,440 cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity requirements contract to provide for reliability, maintainability, quality, supportability, and interoperability to develop and enhance the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory. Research results will be used to enhance efficiencies, reliability, and interoperability of systems, equipment, and information technologies. Research will support exploitation capability requirements and apply those requirements to other geographic combatant commands to establish long-term programmatic responsibilities and identify gaps and vulnerabilities between expeditionary entities. Third is a $44,953,376 cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity requirements contract to provide development of reliability improvement processes and successful implementation to enhance readiness while reducing life-cycle costs for unmanned aerial systems programs utilizing reliability, maintainability, quality, supporting ability, and interoperability best practices.
