ATK won a fourth contract option to produce 30-milimeter cartridges for the Army Contracting Command.

ATK said the award is part of a multi-year contract originally signed in July 2007.

ATK’s worldwide sales of PGU-15A/B ammunition now total than $29 million.

Dan Olson, ATK’s vice president and general manager for integrated weapon systems, said the Air Force uses the cartridges for A-10 training exercises.

ATK will begin delivering the ammunition this year.

ATK’s integrated weapon systems division will produce the rounds in Radford, Va. and Rocket Center, W.Va.
