ATK – BAE Systems Team Awarded $109 Million U.S. Navy Contract

The industry team of ATK (NYSE: ATK) and BAE Systems has been awarded a $109 million contract by the U.S. Navy to perform work for the Engineering and Manufacturing Development of the Joint and Allied Threat Awareness System.

EMD, a next-generation warning system designed to enhance aircraft survivability against man-portable air threats, will be worked on by the ATK team for a period of 48 months. During this time, ATK will focus on transitioning the design from development prototypes to production representative systems with an expected completion date of September 2015. The ATK and BAE Systems team was one of two industry teams competing under a Technology Demonstration phase, awarded in October 2009.

“The ATK – BAE Systems industry team brings tremendous engineering and operations expertise that is focused on making JATAS a success,” said Mike Kahn, president of ATK Missile Products Group. “Our collective experience in the design, development and production of combat-proven aircraft survivability equipment brings together the very best capabilities of our industry to successfully execute and deliver JATAS for our customer.”

ATK and BAE Systems bring experience with installations on more than 5,000 fixed and rotor winged aircraft to their new assignment — including the MV-22, C-5, C-17 and UH-1N/Y —  that span the U.S. military services and several allied nations.
