New NSA orders for Orbital ATK
Orbital ATK has received a number of delivery orders from the US government to supply non-US standard ammunition (NSA) for the Department of Defense (DoD) in support of international allies, the company announced on 3 October.
The orders are worth a combined $126 million.
Kent Holiday, vice president and general manager of Orbital ATK's Small Caliber Systems Division of the Defense Systems Group, said: ‘Orbital ATK has long been a reliable source of affordable, high-quality ammunition to the US armed forces and its allies across the globe.
‘We are honoured to support our army customer in every facet of ammunition requirements they may have, and these significant orders continue Orbital ATK’s legacy of commitment and performance to the US Army NSA programme.’
The company is the operator of the army’s Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, Missouri, where it manufactures small calibre ammunition for the DoD.
