Alliant Techsystems has received an additional $94 million in funding for critical

serves as the operating contractor.
Alliant Techsystems has received an additional $94 million in funding for critical
modernization projects at the Radford Army Ammunition Plant (RFAAP), where it
serves as the operating contractor. The Program Executive Office for
Ammunition in Picatinny, New Jersey and the U.S. Army Sustainment Command in
Rock Island, IL recently awarded the funding. This brings the total amount of
modernization funding received by ATK for RFAAP to $148M over the last two
years.

This funding is supporting a number of critical projects, the largest of
which is the completion of the design and construction of the new Nitric Acid
Concentrator/Sulfuric Acid Concentrator (NAC/SAC) facility. The NAC/SAC is an
acid plant where weak nitric acid and spent acid from nitration processes are
fortified for use in the production of propellants. The funding will also
support the development of a new Solvent Recovery System. Both projects will
allow important chemicals to be recycled on site designed to reduce the
environmental emissions of the plant. Other supported projects include water
distribution system repairs and additional powerhouse repairs.

'This funding reflects the Army's commitment to the modernization and
long-term viability of the Radford plant, which was built in 1941,' said Mark
DeYoung, president of ATK's Armament Systems. 'ATK is partnering with the
Army to improve production efficiency, quality and safety.'
