ATK Receives $220 Million for International Contracts to Deliver Medium-Caliber Cannons and Product Lifecycle Support Services to U.S. Allies

ATK announced that it has received international contracts totaling more than $220 million from U.S. allies for medium-caliber cannons and aftermarket services that will support cannon system integration and product lifecycle. Manufactured at ATK Armament Systems' factory in Mesa, Ariz., Bushmaster(R) Chain Guns(R) and Automatic Cannons are highly coveted for integration across land, air and sea weapons platforms due to their proven performance, reliability and effectiveness. In addition to delivering world-class medium-caliber cannons, ATK also provides full product lifecycle support, which delivers a next level of value to cannon customers by ensuring weapons systems are always fully mission capable, well-maintained and are easily upgraded to meet future requirements.

ATK and Alenia Aermacchi Successfully Complete Testing on Italian Air Force C-27J with Roll-On/Roll-Off Palletized Gun Systems

ATK announced that the company and Finmeccanica-Alenia Aermacchi have successfully completed the first phase of ground and flight testing of the fully configured multi-mission MC-27J tactical transport aircraft with the support of the Italian Air Force (ITAF). The series of tests exceeded all test objectives and demonstrated the accuracy of ATK's side-mounted GAU-23 30mm cannon. The ITAF MC-27J aircraft was modified with an L-3 Wescam MX-15Di Electro-Optical and Infrared Turret mounted under the nose of the aircraft to support multi-mission applications such as a Gunship, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance(ISR) and Search and Rescue (SAR) missions; various radio and data links and ATK's Roll-On/Roll-Off (RORO) palletized gun and mission control systems. The MC-27J is an advanced multi mission system jointly developed by ATK and Alenia Aermacchi, based on the C-27J, the twin-engine turboprop tactical transport aircraft currently available on the market that provides unequalled performance. ATK and Alenia Aermacchi announced their intent to jointly develop and market the MC-27J multi-mission aircraft at the 2012 Farnborough Air Show. The internally funded test and development program successfully completed its first phase in the spring of 2013.

ATK Wins Contract to Provide UltraFlex Solar Arrays for Upcoming Mars InSight Mission

ATK received a contract from Lockheed Martin Space Systems to provide the UltraFlex solar arrays for NASA's InSight Lander mission, which will place a lander on Mars in 2016 to study the red planet's deep interior. The mission will give a better understanding of the processes that shaped the rocky planets of the inner solar system, including Earth, more than four billion years ago. The UltraFlex design successfully passed critical design review in February 2014. ATK is now fabricating the InSight arrays for testing later this year and delivery in 2015.
