ATK And BAE Team For JATAS Program

by Staff Writers
Minneapolis MN (SPX) Aug 12, 2008
Alliant Techsystems and BAE Systems have teamed to compete for the upcoming U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Joint Allied Threat Awareness System (JATAS) program.

JATAS is the Navy's planned next-generation missile warning system that will provide protection for rotary-wing aircraft from infrared guided missiles.

"ATK and BAE Systems have been credited for saving dozens of aircraft and their crews from hostile fire," said Bill Kasting, vice president and general manager of ATK's Integrated Systems division.

"The teaming agreement will facilitate a joint effort that offers the best capabilities of both companies to develop a highly effective aircraft survivability system to meet existing and emerging battlefield threats."

ATK and BAE Systems have developed and fielded the AN/AAR-47 and AN/AAR-57 missile warning systems, respectively, for more than 3,000 rotary-wing and fixed-wing aircraft for the U.S. military and its allies.
