Chemring subsidiaries win US DoD contracts

28th March 2013 - 16:25 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Chemring has announced that its US subsidiaries, Alloy Surfaces and Kilgore Flares, have been awarded contracts to supply decoy devices to the US Army and US Air Force. The contracts, announced on 28 March, have a combined value of $26 million.

Under the first $6 million order Alloy Surfaces will supply the M211 decoy, while the second $20 million order will see Kilgore Flares supply the M206, MJU-7A/B and MJU-10/B decoys.

The US Army and US Air Force use these decoys to protect all of their helicopters, and transport and fighter aircraft against man-portable air defence systems, commonly known as MANPADS.

Mark Papworth, chief executive of Chemring, said: ‘We are very pleased to receive these contracts from the US Army and the US Air Force, which demonstrates their continued confidence and trust in our countermeasures.  We are very proud to deliver the highest quality infra-red decoys to the US Department of Defense and our international customers.’

Deliveries under the contracts are scheduled to begin in June 2013 and will continue into 2015.
