EL SEGUNDO, Calif., 14 May 2009. Wyle won from Boeing a contract to build the Advanced Telemetry Linked Acquisition System III (ATLAS III) ground data system to support Boeing Rotorcraft Systems' flight test programs, including the Army's CH-47 Chinook helicopter and its variants.

The winning Wyle platform employs the latest generation of integrated digital signal processing, including a state-of-the-art telemetry processing engine, advanced XML-indexed binary data mining, and multiview real-time video and data displays.

The system also provides real-time, post-test data product creation for legacy and current generation third-party analysis software.

The new ground station to be built by Wyle's Telemetry and Data Systems unit combines the functionality of a real-time ground station and high-speed data recorder in one four rack-unit chassis, replacing the older approach with 10 rack units.
