NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas
Wyle supports NASA Space Life Sciences Directorate at the Johnson Space Center under the Bioastronautics contract, which is valued at nearly $1 billion over a 10-year period beginning in 2003. Under the contract, Wyle's work supports the International Space Station, Space Shuttle, and Human Research Programs. Wyle maintains readiness of Space Life Sciences facilities and laboratories. Wyle provides services for program integration; habitability and environmental factors; human adaptation and countermeasures; space medicine; flight hardware development and human research activities. While the majority of the work is performed at Johnson Space Center, work also is performed at launch and landing sites in the United States and Russia, as well as at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Moscow.
The NASA Life Sciences Directorate’s mission is to optimize human health and productivity for space exploration. All Space Life Sciences human health and countermeasures research, medical operations, habitability and environmental factors activities, and directorate support functions are ultimately aimed at achieving this mission.
Brooks City-Base, San Antonio, Texas
Wyle supports the USAF 311th Human Systems Wing at Brooks City-Base in San Antonio, Texas. Wyle scientists and technicians have supported the Air Force Research Lab's Biodynamics and Protection Division's efforts in acceleration protection for more than 20 years, thus enhancing the warfighter's physical and cognitive performance in the high G environment, thus helping to ensure America's aerospace force retains its preeminence. Efforts include conducting exploratory research and advanced development to improve protection against the maneuvering stresses of flight. Efforts also include developing improved equipment and procedures; providing modifications to and integration support for current and developmental acceleration protection systems; and testing to ensure quality and performance of developmental systems.
With headquarters at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) conducts research, development, test and evaluation, and provides acquisition management services and logistics support necessary to keep Air Force weapon systems ready for war. The 311th Human Systems Wing's mission is to improve combat power and efficiency in human performance, protection and support through the many facets of aerospace medicine. The wing produces products that assess and manage health, safety and environmental risks for the U.S. Air Force and Department of Defense. The wing trains more than 5,000 aeromedical personnel annually. Wing personnel manage more than 140 technical acquisition and sustainment programs.

With headquarters at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, the Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) conducts research, development, test and evaluation, and provides acquisition management services and logistics support necessary to keep Air Force weapon systems ready for war. AFMC delivers war-winning expeditionary capabilities to the warfighter through development and transition of technology, professional acquisition management, exacting test and evaluation, and world-class sustainment of all Air Force weapon systems. From cradle-to-grave, AFMC provides the work force and infrastructure necessary to ensure the United States remains the world's most respected Air and Space Force.
Joint Strike Fighter Program
Wyle provides the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter Program with a wide range of program management services for the next generation strike fighter. Wyle’s professionals provide a broad range of support to the program including engineering, financial management, cost analysis, requirements development, operational support, international sales support and logistics planning and execution.
The Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program is the Department of Defense's focal point for defining affordable next generation strike aircraft weapon systems for the Navy, Air Force, Marines, and U.S. allies. The focus of the program is affordability -- reducing the development cost, production cost, and cost of ownership of the JSF family of aircraft. The JSF will fulfill service needs as the U. S. Navy’s first day of war, survivable strike fighter aircraft to complement F/A-18E/F; the U.S. Air Force’s Multirole aircraft (primary-air-to-ground) to replace the F-16 and A-10 and complement the F/A-22; the U.S. Marine Corps STOVL aircraft to replace the AV-8B and F/A-18 as their only strike fighter; the United Kingdom Royal Navy and Royal Air Force STOVL aircraft to replace Sea Harriers & GR.7s as a supersonic strike fighter; and other countries’ potential JSF customers.
U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Life Cycle Management Command
Wyle test pilots support the Army’s Aviation and Missile Command AMCOM and Wyle’s technical professionals provide systems engineering, logistics, air crew, foreign military sales, test and evaluation, and program acquisition support services to the UH-60 helicopter and ASH program offices at Ft. Rucker and Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.
