ATK Signs $65.8 Million XM25 Weapon System Deal with Army

ATK (NYSE: ATK) won a $65.8 million Engineering and Manufacturing Development contract from the Army’s Program Executive Office to provide the XM25, Individual Semi-Automatic Airburst System.

According to the firm, “the 30-month contract calls for the continuing design, integration, production, and testing of full-up systems to ensure the weapon’s final design meets performance requirements and is production-ready prior to fielding.”

“The XM25 provides the soldier on the ground a precision weapon to quickly and accurately engage targets behind cover or exposed targets, at ranges and accuracies not seen in today’s small arms, ” said Bruce DeWitt, VP and general manager of ATK’s Advanced Weapons Division. “A soldier using basic rifle marksmanship skills can effectively engage targets in less than five seconds while also reducing the chances for collateral damage.”
