ATK completes US Army contract for supply chain logistics in the delivery of non-standard ammunition to the Afghan Security Forces
Alliant Techsystems (ATK) has completed its first contract to supply non-standard (non-NATO) Ammunition to the Afghan Security Forces (ASF), ahead of the original schedule. The US Army Contracting Command in Rock Island awarded the $87 million contract to ATK in December 2008. The contract required ATK to lead a global supply chain effort to procure and deliver various small, medium, and large calibre ammunition, grenades, and aviation rockets, including mission-critical 57 mm rockets and 12.7 x 108 mm ammunition. The supply of high-quality, non-standard Ammunition directly supports the efforts of the ASF to secure Afghanistan's borders and protect its citizens in the ongoing fight against insurgent forces.

'Successfully completing this contract once again demonstrates ATK's commitment to delivering mission-critical, quality products on time. ATK has repeatedly delivered excellent performance in the global marketplace,' said Mark DeYoung, ATK Senior Vice President and President Armament Systems. 'We continue to make use of our technical capabilities, program and supply chain management competencies, and a proven business approach to build our global portfolio and pursue broader international market opportunities.'

ATK recently secured two additional NSA contracts: a three-year contract with the US Army to supply non-standard Ammunition to the ASF, and a separate US Army contract to provide non-standard weapons to the ASF.
