In mid-June 2010, Alliant Techsystems (ATK) received a $41 million contract modification to supply additional non-standard (non-NATO) ammunition to the Afghan Security Forces (ASF), under an existing 3-year contract with the U.S. Army.
Under the contract awarded to ATK in 2009 by the U.S. Army Contracting Command in Rock Island, Ill., ATK provides supply chain management, quality assurance and logistical expertise in the delivery of non-standard small, medium and large caliber ammunition, as well as mortars and rockets, to Kabul for use by allied security forces.
"ATK established its small-caliber ammunition market leadership by serving the United States Forces, and now, by drawing on our expertise in quality control, program and supply chain management, and world-class manufacturing, we are expanding to serve the needs of our allies around the world," said Mark Hissong, Vice President and General Manager of ATK Small Caliber Systems (SCS).
