Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
ATK
: 04 January, 2007  (New Product)
Alliant Techsystems has received a series of contracts to supply the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with a variety of small-caliber ammunition. If all contract options are exercised, the total value could exceed $90 million.
This series of contract awards elevates DHS to one of ATK's top three civil Ammunition customers. Work on the contracts will be performed by facilities in Anoka, Minnesota and Lewiston, Idaho.

ATK will provide rifle Ammunition to DHS's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division under a five-year opportunity with a potential total value of approximately $75 million. The contract includes a mix of enhanced performance rounds capable of barrier penetration, as well as standard duty ammunition.

In addition, the company announced it will provide DHS's U.S. Coast Guard with 40-caliber tactical pistol ammunition, also under a five-year opportunity, with an estimated total value of $15 million if all options are exercised.

'ATK has pioneered significant advances in projectile technology and has incorporated these improvements into the rounds it will provide to DHS,' said Mark DeYoung, President, ATK Ammunition Systems Group. 'This Ammunition performs extremely well against a variety of barriers.'
