Army Contracts For GPS Guided Mortar Round

by Greg on April 26, 2010

After fast tracking the selection process, the Army signed a contract with Alliant Techsystems (ATK) to speed delivery of a 120mm GPS guided mortar round to troops in Afghanistan. The Accelerated Precision Mortar Initiative (APMI) was a response to an urgent request for precision mortars from commanders in Afghanistan. The new GPS rounds should be in the field by November.
