KBRwyle was formerly known as Wyle Inc. and changed its name to KBRwyle in July 2016. Founded in 1949 by Frank S. Wyle (grandfather of actor Noah Wyle) as part of the rapidly expanding Southern California aerospace industry, Wyle Laboratories, Inc. began operations in El Segundo, CA as a testing laboratory. Over time, the company diversified into a variety of markets and businesses. Through a buy-out in 1995, the company was split into Wyle Electronics and the Scientific Services and Systems Group, which continued to operate as Wyle Laboratories. In 2007, the company decided to simplify its name to Wyle since its primary business focus had evolved into a wide range of high tech services and solutions. It still operates laboratories, but its primary business focus is on securing long term services contracts from the Department of Defense, NASA and other Federal agencies. As of July 1, 2016, KBRwyle operates as a subsidiary of KBR Holdings, LLC.

NTGS Alakran Mortar Carrier System

NTGS Alakran Mortar Carrier System


The Alakran is one of the world lightest 81 and 120 mm mortar carrier system. The 120mm mortar system is mounted on Toyota chassis Landcruiser but it can be easily integrated on other light vehicles such as Jeep J8 and, Land Rover, or any other pickup vehicle from 1.5 ton payload without the need for structural reinforcements. Since it doesn’t use any recoil absorber system, Alakran is easy to operate and it keeps the traditional mortar tube effectiveness and efficiency. The Alakran by New Technologies Global Systems (NTGS) , a company of the Everis Aerospace and Defense Group.

The Alakran 81 or 120mm mortar carrier system is mounted at the rear of the vehicle, in fire position the mortar is deployed at the rear of the chassis on a base-plate platform, firing 81mm or 120mm rounds and sending the recoil energy directly into the ground. This means there is no need for any vehicle reinforcement, which in turn means that lighter vehicles – both cheaper and transportable by helicopter – can be deployed as mortar carriers. The Alakran uses an aiming electro-mechanical system MAD-1 also developed by the Spanish Company NTGS that allows aiming and shooting in a much faster way, with automatic calculations and by means of radio communications, avoiding shouting orders.

The Alakran mortar system needs only 30 seconds to be ready to fire, two seconds to re-aim after shooting, five seconds to aim at a new target, and 15 seconds to be on the move again. The system can be operated with a crew of two and the vehicle can carried a total of 40 rounds located on storage boxes on each side of the vehicle. This extraordinary capability together with its logistic vehicle appearance makes Alakran a formidable weapon system.

NTGS offers the Alakran system, a solution consisting of a mortar system mounted in a pick up vehicle. Once the shooting location has been reached, the mortar is deployed on the ground by means of a hydraulic system. Then, the mortar is ready to be fired. It is obvious this system offers a faster and more effective shooting. When it is necessary to leave, the vehicle lifts up the mortar and put it back inside. The great advantage in comparison with the traditional weapon is deploying and withdrawing the mortar system takes just few seconds. It is available both integrated in the vehicle or it can be integrated in any vehicle, after some engineering adaptations NTGS will carry out.

EC-130H Compass Call


The EC-130H Compass Call is an airborne tactical weapon system using a heavily modified version of the C-130 Hercules airframe. The system disrupts enemy command and control communications and limits adversary coordination essential for enemy force management. The Compass Call system employs offensive counter-information and electronic attack (or EA) capabilities in support of U.S. and Coalition tactical air, surface, and special operations forces.
Planned upgrades will add the ability to attack early warning and acquisition radars. Based at Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona, EC-130Hs can be deployed worldwide at short notice to support U.S. and allied tactical air, surface, and special operations forces. The EC-130H is one of the four main U.S. electronic warfare aircraft, along with the Boeing EA-18 Growler, Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler, and F-16CJ Fighting Falcon, all of which can suppress enemy air defenses while jamming communications, radar, and command-and-control targets. In September 2017, the Air Force announced that L3 Technologies will serve as the lead systems integrator for a future Compass Call aircraft based on the Gulfstream 550 business jet. The new Compass Call platform has been designated EC-X.
The EC-130H aircraft carries a combat crew of 13 people. Four members handle aircraft flight and navigation (aircraft commander, co-pilot, navigator and flight engineer), while nine members operate and employ the EA mission equipment permanently integrated in the cargo/mission compartment. The mission crew includes the mission crew commander (electronic warfare officer), weapon system officer (electronic warfare officer), mission crew supervisor (an experienced cryptologic linguist), four analysis operators (linguists), one acquisition operator and an airborne maintenance technician.
Compass Call has been used in Kosovo, Haiti, Panama, Iraq, Serbia, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. From 2002 to 2015, EC-130Hs participating in Operation Enduring Freedom – Afghanistan and Operation Freedom’s Sentinel flew over 40,000 hours during 6,900 combat sorties.
