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
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.
