EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 27 (UPI) — Wyle, a California engineering firm, reports a contract from the U.S. Air Force for services to support environmental programs.
The award — for environmental research, analysis, and engineering — was issued by the U.S. Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment. It will support the organization’s environmental planning and environmental sustainability of Air Force facilities.
Under the $20 million contract, Wyle’s services will include noise and air-quality model prototyping and development, training, inter-operability studies and assessments related to human or community response to noise and emissions.
Measurement and sampling of noise and air quality will also be provided as well as measuring of architectural acoustics, noise control, structural acoustics and vibration, land-use studies and studies on greenhouse gas.
“We are committed to helping the U.S. military safeguard its mission while protecting the environment,” said Jawad Rachami, Wyle’s director of Environmental and Energy Research and Consulting unit.
“We are excited to be in a position to help the Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment achieve its long-term environmental and energy efficiency goals at a time when the Department of Defense is looking ahead to new strategies for sustainable operations.”
