ATK has received additional orders worth $10 million for non-standard ammunition (NSA) in support of its current NSA multi-year contract with the U.S. Army Contracting Command in Rock Island, Ill. The three-year contract calls for ATK to acquire and deliver a broad range of NSA, or non-NATO ammunition, to Kabul, Afghanistan, to train and sustain allied security forces. Since December 2008, ATK has successfully delivered more than 220 million non-standard material items to Afghanistan including, but not limited to, small, medium and large-caliber ammunition, mortars, RPG munitions, aviation rockets, and non-standard weapons. ATK deliveries for these products on average have been more than one month ahead of schedule.
