ATK : 13 April, 2007  (New Product)
Alliant Techsystems has received an $85.8 million contract from Lockheed Martin to produce solid rocket propulsion systems for all three stages of the U.S.Navy's Trident II (D-5) Fleet Ballistic Missile (FBM).
Under terms of the contract, ATK will continue to supply Trident solid Rocket propulsion systems to the Trident II (D-5) Missile System Prime Contractor, Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, Sunnyvale, Calif, through 2011. Deployed in 1990, Trident II (D-5) is the only U.S. submarine-launched strategic missile system in production today. The propulsion systems will be produced by ATK at its facilities in Utah.

'ATK is pleased to support Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Navy on this critical program and looks forward to continued success on this joint effort.' said Bill Condas, Vice President of Strategic and Commercial Systems for ATK Launch Systems.

ATK is the world's leading supplier of solid Rocket motors. It has a 51-year history of producing solid propulsion systems for submarine-launched ballistic missiles, beginning with the Polaris missile and continuing through the Trident II (D-5) FBM. The company's solid Rocket portfolio ranges from 3-inch diameter spin motors to the Space Shuttle's Reusable Solid Rocket Motors (RSRM).
