Contract Award – ATK – BAE Systems – $32.2 Million – Navy

The Department of the Navy has awarded Alliant Techsystems and BAE Systems a $32.2 million contract to develop the Joint Allied Threat Awareness System. The system will be used on Navy and Marine Corps aircraft.

Alliant Techsystems and BAE Systems are responsible for a prototype demonstration within 16 months. The Joint Allied Threat Awareness System (JATAS) is a missile warning system that will operate on fix wing and rotary aircraft. The system is designed to provide alerts of both guided missiles and smaller, portable systems often employed by insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bill Kasting, VP and general manager of Integrated Systems at ATK said “Our JATAS team brings together the best capabilities of our industry to develop an affordable, innovative and more capable system that aircrews can trust with their lives when flying in harm’s way.” Jim Crouch, VP and general manager of BAE System’s Survivability and Protection Solutions, said “The team is committed to providing the best protection available to Navy and Marine aircrews.”
