ATK [ATK] yesterday said during its fiscal first quarter, April-June, it received international contracts from allies totaling more than $220 million for medium-caliber cannons and aftermarket services that will support cannon system integration and product lifecycle.
“Providing defensive weapons systems and support services to our country’s allies is at the core of our international business and represents important growth across many of our key products,” said Mike Kahn, senior vice president and president of ATK’s Defense Group. “ATK brings experience, innovation and value to its customers, earned from its unique position in the defense industry as a systems designer, manufacturer and maintainer.”
Manufactured at ATK Armament Systems’ factory in Mesa, Ariz., Bushmaster® Chain Guns® and Automatic Cannons are highly coveted for integration across land, air and sea weapons platforms due to their proven performance, reliability and effectiveness.
“Our guns team possesses the unique combination of experience and technological innovation that has set the standard within our industry,” said Dan Olson, vice president and general manager of ATK’s Armament Systems division. “Today, more than 16,000 of our cannons are installed on allied platforms worldwide.”
In addition to delivering world-class medium-caliber cannons, ATK also provides full product lifecycle support, which delivers a next level of value to cannon customers by ensuring weapons systems are always fully mission capable, well-maintained and are easily upgraded to meet future requirements.
ATK offers fully customizable programs for integrated logistics, OEM-quality spares, training, field service support, repair, and remanufacturing capabilities for its entire line of Bushmaster® Chain Gun® and Automatic Cannons, the company said in a statement. ATK also provides aftermarket services at the time of sale or as an enhanced offering to those already with an installed base of ATK cannons. Additionally, ATK is capable of providing similar services for non-ATK medium-caliber cannons worldwide.
