Contractor: Alliant Techsystems, Incorporated
Alliant Techsystems Inc., Mesa, Ariz., is being awarded an estimated $44,622,000 firm-fixed-price contract for MK 244 Mod 0, 20mm, linked armor-piercing discarding sabot cartridges. The MK 244 Mod 0, 20mm, linked, armor-piercing discarding sabot cartridges are electric-primed 20mm cartridges designed to function in the M61A1 20mm machine gun mounted into the shipboard Phalanx Close-In Weapons Systems. This cartridge is referred to as the Enhanced Lethality Cartridge, as it contains a heavier projectile and inflicts more damage to the target than the precursor to this round, the MK149 Mod 4. Work will be performed in Independence, Mo., and is expected to be completed by September 2010. Contract funds in the amount of $512,519, will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
