Wyle provides unique hardware solutions to its customer’s challenges in multiple development and sustaining engineering areas. Its demonstrated engineering design, development, test and evaluation (DDT&E) systems have flown on nearly every U.S. human space flight mission.
Wyle’s flight tested hardware/system experience includes:
- Advanced medical projects systems research and hardware development
- Exercise countermeasures systems research and hardware development
- Environmental sensor equipment development
- Crew health care systems development and sustaining engineering
- Program technical and managerial services
Wyle has developed a broad set of engineering development and sustaining engineering core skills required to support hardware and systems DDT&E, including the following:
- Mechanical design engineering (SolidWorks, Pro-E, AutoCad) with core skills in integrated mechanical, electrical, fluid/gas pressurized systems
- Electrical circuit design (analog, digital, mixed signal, micro-controller design, simulation and test using state-of-the art EECAD tools), printed circuit board layout, fabrication and test
- Software design, test, and implementation includes demonstrated knowledge in all major operating systems as well as several common graphical user interface
- Engineering design analysis includes material and processing, computational fluid dynamics, stress and loads analysis, fault tolerance and reliability analysis
- On-site mechanical fabrication, assembly and test facility which includes a machine shop with CNC capability, prototype labs and softgoods fabrication
- On-site electromechanical fabrication and test including cable fabrication, pull testing, through-hole and surface mount technology PCB assembly and test
- On-site thermal environmental testing for components and subsystems
Wyle has developed, delivered and tested closed loop rotating and stationary bioreactors, incubators, water analysis instruments, calibrated gas mixing and delivery systems, refrigerator/freezer systems and exercise systems in the extreme environment of space.
