ATK announced today its Eagle Industries business has received a five-year, $50 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from the Marine Corps System Command. The firm will produce the U.S. Marine Corps' new USMC Pack.
“We take pride in producing products that support our military in combat operations and training environments,“ said Ron Johnson, ATK Security and Supporting group president. “The new USMC pack provides an enhanced capability to the U.S. Marine Corps and demonstrates ATK's commitment to helping improve the effectiveness of our forces.“
The Marine Corps noted its new pack increases the overall combat effectiveness of the user by maximizing the ability to carry combat loads more efficiently, minimizing the burdens of weight and improving the overall system compatibility.
