ATK Awarded $49 Million Follow-on Contract to Provide AAR-47 Missile Warning System Components for US and Allied Military Aircraft

7th October 2009 - 13:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Alliant Techsystems has been awarded a $49.3 million contract by the US Navy for the procurement of AAR-47 Missile Warning System components for the US military and allies.

These systems include both the AAR-47 A(V)2 and B (V)2 configurations.

The majority of work will be performed at ATK's Clearwater, Fla., location, and is expected to be completed in early 2012.

ATK's AAR-47 missile warning system is an electronic warfare system designed to protect helicopters and aircraft against surface-to-air missile threats. The AAR-47 missile warning system is installed on aircraft flown by the US and its allies in more than 16 countries. ATK has been under contract to the US Navy and US Marine Corps since 1991 to manufacture the AAR-47 electronic warfare system.

The systems are installed on more than 2,600 fixed and rotary-wing aircraft including the C-5, C-17, C-130, P-3, AH-1W, UH-1N, V-22, and numerous others.

"ATK's AAR-47 missile warning system has been credited with saving dozens of aircraft and their crews from attack," said Bill Kasting, vice president and general manager of ATK's Integrated Systems division. "The innovative and affordable combination of AAR-47's reliable sensor technology and mature processing algorithms are combat-proven and protecting our warfighters today."
