BAE SYSTEMS To Deliver First Order Of 57mm Target Practice Ammunition to U.S. Navy.
The TP ammunition, which has improved Insensitive Munitions (IM) characteristics, was developed to train sailors on the 57mm Mk 110 Naval Gun system. The naval gun and its ammunition have been selected to go aboard the U.S. Navy's Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), and on the U.S. Coast Guard's National Security Cutter. It's also the close-in gun system for the Navy's new destroyer, the DD 1000, formerly called the DD(X).
"For the Mk 110 Naval Gun system program, both the gun system and the ammunition are being delivered by BAE Systems," said Keith Howe, BAE Systems' vice president and general manager for Armament Systems. "Together, this gun system and its ammunition provide the Navy and the Coast Guard with the most advanced technology armament warfare."
BAE Systems was awarded the contract by NSWC-Crane.
