BAE Gets $178M Army Contract Modification for Nitrocellulose Facility Construction

BAE Systems has secured a potential two-year, $177.8 million contract modification to build and commission a new nitrocellulose production facility at the Radford Army Ammunition Plant in Virginia.

BAE’s ordnance systems business will perform work in Radford, Virginia, through Dec. 31, 2018, the Defense Department said Thursday.

The Army Contracting Command will obligate $171.8 million from the service branch’s “other” funds for fiscal 2015 through 2017 at the time of award.

The BAE-operated Radford Army Ammunition Plant produces solvent and solventless propellants designed to support DoD’s direct and indirect fire operations and rocket missions.
