ATK Awarded Production Contract for the U.S. Navy’s Multi-Option Fuze — Press Release

ATK’s Multi-Option Fuze Provides Increased Mission Capability for U.S. Navy’s 5-inch Gun Ammunition

Five-Year Production Contract to be Performed at Allegany Ballistics Laboratory in Rocket Center, W. Va.

ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — ATK (NYSE: ATK) announced that it received a five-year, Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract from the U.S. Army Contracting Command for the production of the MK 437 Multi-Option Fuze, Navy (MOFN). The contract has a maximum total value of $84.1 million. ATK has received the first order on this contract, for approximately $13 million. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in November 2013.

The MOFN increases the overall mission capability of 5-inch gun ammunition used on U.S. Navy ships by providing proximity, precision time, delay and point detonating impact functions in a single fuze. The inductive fuze setting feature also optimizes MOFN for use with automated ammunition handling equipment. MOFN will be used on projectiles fired in the MK 45 Single Lightweight Gun Mount on U.S. Navy cruisers and destroyers.

“ATK is pleased to add MOFN to our portfolio of fuze production programs. MOFN leverages ATK’s design, development and production experience, providing the U.S. Navy with an affordable, reliable fuze for its 5/54 caliber ammunition,” said Dave Fine, ATK’s Director of Fuzing and Warhead programs.

“ATK has a strong program and manufacturing team dedicated to producing MOFN for the U.S. Navy,” said Cary Ralston, vice president and general manager of ATK Missile Products Division. “This award reflects the tremendous dedication and commitment of our highly-skilled workforce and our industry partners.”

Production of this fuze will occur at the Allegany Ballistics Laboratory (ABL) facility in Rocket Center, W. Va. ABL is a U.S. Navy-owned, ATK-operated facility specializing in advanced manufacturing technologies for a variety of programs supporting current and future U.S. industrial base needs in advanced fuzing and integration, conventional munitions assemblies, solid rocket motor propulsion, and advanced material structures.

ATK is an aerospace, defense, and commercial products company with operations in 21 states, Puerto Rico, and internationally. News and information can be found on the Internet at www.atk.com.

U.S. Army Places Contracts for Defensive Radars

U.S. troops deployed to Afghanistan primarily face a threat from indirect weapons. These include rockets and mortars used at their static facilities and the ever present mine and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) to vehicle and foot movement. The U.S. Army placed yesterday two contracts for systems to help counter these threats.

First, Lockheed Martin (LMT) received an option on an existing contract to procure more TPQ-53 counterfire radars. These provide detection and warning of mortars and rockets and allow defensive and counter measures to take place. This contract has a value of almost $400 million and will procure 33 sets of equipment. Earlier the Army had issued a contract for 12. These radars have been in development since 2007 and use since last year.

The Army also placed an Indefinite Delivery/Indoctrinate Quantity (ID/IQ) contract with NIITEK, a subsidiary of Chemring Group PLC, for their Husky Ground Penetrating Radar. This contract has a total value of close to $600 million if all options are exercised. The initial contract is worth $161 million. With all ID/IQ contracts the government does not have to spend anything or just a part of the total value.

The NIITEK Husky is a radar mounted on a vehicle used to detect mines and other threats buried in the ground. It also includes a metal detector if desired. The system supports route clearing and checking as part of a convoy or on separate missions.

These two contracts demonstrate that the U.S. still meets significant threats in Afghanistan and that the U.S. is being innovative in meeting them. It also shows that the U.S. will invest in systems for these missions despite budget and deficit issues.

U.S. Army Expands Rifle Production to Remington

Update — It has been reported that Colt will protest the Army decision to award this contract to Remington. Protests are normally settled within 100 days and no work may be done until it is resolved.

The U.S. Army and most of the rest of the U.S. military and allied nations have been using the M16 rifle since its introduction almost 50 years ago during Vietnam. During the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan the M4 carbine version of the rifle came into heavy use due to its shorter length and lighter weight. The M4 has been primarily produced by Colt.

The U.S. has tried to develop multiple times a new rifle to replace the M16 but no new weapon has gone into production. The most recent try was the XM8 system that saw only the 25mm “Punisher” variant go into use. Dissatisfaction with the M4′s range and accuracy has also led to Special Forces and other select troops using weapons like Hechler-Koch’s SCAR system. Even so the M4 has soldiered on for the last decade in the dust and heat of South West Asia.

Now the U.S. Army has awarded a production contract to Remington Arms for up to 120,000 M4/M4Aq carbines. There were rumors of this contract award earlier this week and yesterday the company issued a press release confirming it.

The initial buy is for 24,000 of the rifle with another 96,000 if all options are exercised. The contract is an Indefinite Quantity/Indefinite Delivery (ID/IQ) one which allows the Army to pick-and-choose how much and when.

The Army is carrying out trials for a new standard rifle with a potential new contest in the future.

The decision to expand production to include Remington is interesting as Colt has made the M4 for many years.

Navy Buys Internet Services for Troop Morale & Welfare

The U.S. military is made up of mainly young men and women who form the bulk of the enlisted members. They have grown up with the internet and instant communications. Over the last ten years they have added such tools as Facebook, Twitter, Skype and other social media applications. The U.S. military recognizes this and in a move to help morale and welfare contracted to set up internet cafe services across the world.

DRS Technical Services (DRS) has been awarded an Indefinite Quantity/Indefinite Delivery (ID/IQ)m contract to provide these kinds of services by the U.S. Navy. The value of this contract if all options are executed would be over $250 million. As with all ID/IQ contracts there is no guarantee that the Navy will order any tasks under this so even though DRS has qualified for the work they may get little or none out of it.

The services will be to set up and maintain logistics support for communications services for DoD and other government agencies internet cafes and site for personnel use. The majority of the work will be done in Iraq and Afghanistan but will also have support in Germany and the U.S. It looks like this task will be used by other Agencies as they are the majority of personnel deployed in Iraq right now.

The need for these kind of services is just a normal growth of the other Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) services provided by the U.S. military. This includes commissary and exchanges for shopping as well as organized sports and tourism and other activities meant to fill time. The internet connection is especially key now to provide troops with family contact beyond the traditional mail.

Navy Invests in Protecting Civil Engineering Crews and Equipment with ADSI

The U.S. Navy is heavily involved in operations in Afghanistan by providing civil engineering support. The “SeaBee” units of construction personnel provide the ability as they have done since World War II to build facilities and provide services. In the day of the IED and mine their equipment needs to be armored and protected to survive this threat and protect their crews. As part of this effort the Navy awarded three companies the chance to provide up-armoring to the civil engineering equipment. One of these companies is American Defense Systems, Inc. (ADSI).

The contract allows the Navy to choose who will receive contracts under an Indefinite Quantity, Indefinite Delivery (ID/IQ) structure. There is no guarantee that ADSI or the other companies will win work but it represents a good step forward for the company. The contract allows a maximum of $50 million awards and this is larger then any previous quantity received by ADSI.

ADSI makes modular add on armor kits that are fit to the individual vehicles as necessary. This allows them to be applied to an array of different systems. They also may be applied in theater as well as in the U.S.

With the threat from the IED and mine as well as direct fire the U.S. has been moving over the last five-or-six years to develop up armored vehicles of all types. This is perhaps best exemplified by the use of the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles used for troop transport and engineering work.

Defense Department Awards Further RFID Contract

Continuing their investment in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) the United States’ Defense Department awarded an Indefinite Quantity/Indefinite Delivery (ID/IQ) contract for RFID equipment. Intermec, Inc. was one of the winners. If all options on the contract are awarded it could be for nine years with a value up to $418 million.

Intermec has been making equipment for the electronic tracking of goods for over twenty years and has received significant contracts from DoD in the past. RFID has made it easier and more efficient to track and ship materiel by providing quick means to identify cargo and route it. Under the Automatic Identification Technology (AIT) – IV contract not only DoD entities but the U.S. Coast Guard, NATO and other allies as well as foreign countries may purchase this technology. Intermec like with all ID/IQ contracts is not necessarily guaranteed any work from it depending on how the U.S. wants to exercise the contract.
