ATK's Eagle Industries wins USMC contract

11th November 2011 - 12:04 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ATK’s Eagle Industries has been awarded a $24.9 million contract from Marine Corps Systems Command to produce the US Marine Corps' new standard-issue pack. This is the second delivery order received by the company in two weeks, following the announcement of the initial contract order last month.

According to ATK, the new load bearing equipment system is designed to allow Marines to carry equipment needed in support of combat operations. The USMC's new pack increases the overall combat effectiveness of the user by maximising the ability to carry combat loads more efficiently, minimizing the burdens of weight and improving overall system compatibility.

Both contract orders, worth a combined $75 million, are expected to be complete January 31, 2013.
