ATK Space Systems Inc. in Clearfield, UT received a $21.7 million5 indefinite-quantity/ indefinite-delivery contract. It provides for the development and demonstration of automated composite production technologies, which may lead to enhanced design and manufacturing of cost-effective large composite structures for use on space launch vehicles. The technologies to be developed are intended to enable improved manufacturing scale, performance and reliability, while providing design flexibility and an improvement in costs for current and future space launch vehicles. Solicitations began September 2005, negotiations were complete in June 2006, and work will be complete October 2011. The Air Force Research Laboratory at Kirtland Air Force Base, NM issued the contract (FA9453-06-D-0368).
