BILLINGSTAD, Norway - Kitron has signed an agreement with Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles. The potential contract value is NOK250 million ($29.9 million) over a five-year period. The agreement covers manufacturing of electronics, measuring instruments and control devices.

The production will take place at Kitron's plant in Kaunas, Lithuania.

"One and a half year ago we announced a new contract with Rheinmetall Defence Electronics. Our operational performance and ability to fulfil our obligations have opened new opportunities with other Rheinmetall divisions.

DULLES, Virginia - Orbital ATK’s precision guidance kit (PGK) is well into full-rate production and has now delivered more than 10,000 units. PGK combines guidance and fuze function for conventional artillery projectiles into one device, allowing battlefield commanders to employ artillery with greater accuracy and less collateral damage risk when engaging high-value targets.

By replacing a standard fuze with Orbital ATK's guidance fuze, artillery projectiles are reliably delivered to within 30 meters of the intended target. During recent lot acceptance tests, randomly selected PGK fuzes provided accuracy better than 10 meters Circular Error Probable and performed all fuze functions with a perfect safety record. This degree of accuracy greatly reduces conventional artillery dispersion, which can be 200 meters or more.

PGK enhances accuracy through Orbital ATK’s innovative design which features a fixed-canard guidance approach, gun-hardened electronics and a self-generated power supply. PGK also incorporates a "fail-safe" option, preventing the projectile from detonating if it does not get close enough to the target.

Under the initial production contract that fielded more than 4,000 units, Orbital ATK successfully completed a series of nine separate lot acceptance tests that demonstrated PGK's reliability to guide the round while in flight and perform all fuze functions correctly under extreme environmental conditions. In July 2016, Orbital ATK signed a $69 million contract that exercises a second option to produce PGK for the U.S. military through 2019.

Orbital ATK’s Defense Systems Group is an industry leader in providing innovative and affordable precision and strike weapons, advanced propulsion and hypersonics, missile components across air-, sea- and land-based systems, ammunition and related energetic products.
