DULLES, Va. - Orbital ATK announced that the U.S. Army has placed an additional $123 million in orders under production contract Option 2 for the Precision Guidance Kit (PGK) that will continue to deliver PGK’s to the warfighter. Orbital ATK had previously signed a $69 million production option in July 2016 under the same Option 2.

PGK enhances accuracy through Orbital ATK’s innovative design, which combines guidance and fuze function for conventional 155mm artillery projectiles into one affordable, GPS-guided device, giving the warfighter the precision necessary to reduce the risk of collateral damage when engaging high-value targets. By replacing a standard fuze with Orbital ATK's PGK, artillery projectiles are reliably delivered to within 50 meters of the intended target whereas conventional artillery dispersion can be 200 meters. During recent lot acceptance tests, randomly selected PGK fuzes met all acceptance criteria for accuracy and reliability while also performing required fuze functions with a perfect safety record.

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.

OSHKOSH, Wis. - Oshkosh Defense, LLC, an Oshkosh Corporation company, will feature the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) and P-19R Aircraft Rescue Firefighting (ARFF) at this year’s Modern Day Marine military expo, September 19-21 at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia.

The Oshkosh JLTV on display at Modern Day Marine is outfitted with a Boeing Compact Laser Weapon System (CLWS) and a Kongsberg M230LF Remote Weapon Station (RWS) to demonstrate the vehicle’s ability to support multiple lethality requirements for its many possible mission profiles.

The JLTV program is currently in Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) and remains on-schedule, on-budget and is completing reliability and performance test activities as well as logistics supportability evaluations around the country. The program anticipates a Full Rate Production decision in FY19, with the first Army unit equipped by mid-FY19 and both Army and Marine Corps Initial Operating Capability (IOC) in early FY20.

The P-19R on display at the show is a representation of the vehicles that began fielding in June earlier this year. The vehicle platform combines the combat-proven Oshkosh Logistics Vehicle System Replacement (LVSR) and the technologically advanced Striker firefighting systems from Oshkosh Airport Products. Oshkosh began fielding the first P-19Rs in June of 2017 and in total, Oshkosh will deliver 164 P-19Rs through 2019.
