Chemring’s Kilgore Flares business will produce the SM-875/ALE training flares at a company facility in Toone, Tennessee, and is scheduled to finish work in August 2022, the Defense Department said Tuesday.

The Navy received two offers for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract through a full and open competition on FedBizOpps and the service branch’s Electronic Commerce Online portal.

DoD noted the obligated amount of $3.1 million at the time of award is from fiscal 2016 Navy and Marine Corps ammunition procurement funds.
