ATK - NASA Contract for Reusable Solid Rocket Motors

ATK : 19 February, 2008  (Company News)
Alliant Techsystems has received a contract modification from NASA valued at $812.5 million for the continued production and refurbishment of four-segment reusable solid rocket motors (RSRM) for the space shuttle program.
The modified contract covers the production and refurbishment of flight and ground-test RSRMs.

'ATK's solid Rocket motors prove their reliability and performance on each space shuttle mission,' said Ron Dittemore, president, ATK Launch Systems. 'With this contract extension we will continue to support NASA and the space shuttle program through 2010 when it is scheduled to retire, and are looking forward to continuing our legacy with a five-segment booster for Ares I, NASA's new crew launch vehicle.'

The contract is the seventh in a series of contracts awarded to ATK for the design, development, production and refurbishment of RSRMs for the space shuttle program.
