XM395 PGMM
LRIP - Low Rate Initial Production
PGMM - Precision Guided Mortar Munition
Alliant Techsystems (ATK) has received an initial $80 million contract from the US Army to design, develop, and begin Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) of the XM395 PGMM weapon. Funds will expire in 2009 and would lead to a full rate production contract valued at more than $500 million, according to current US Army plans.

ATK was already selected for the PGMM program in December 2003, but Lockheed-Martin protested the decision and subsequently the US Army reviewed both proposals in a second competition. After reevaluation the US Army took the same decision twice and awarded the contract to ATK.

ATK will manage the PGMM program and lead system integration from its facility at Plymouth, Minnesota. Program support will be provided by ATK facilities in Woodland Hills, California, and Rocket Center, Virginia.
