The U.S. Army’s XM25 Individual Semi-Automatic Airburst System will continue to receive development support from ATK under a contract modification.

Under the $24 million modification, the Minnesota company will provide the Army with additional ammunition, hardware, test and analysis support to further user assessments of the XM25.

The Army began a Forward Operational Assessment of the XM25 last year with soldiers in Afghanistan to determine its capabilities through use in actual combat operations. Based on the weapon’s initial success throughout the FOA, the Army has requested the items necessary to continue further weapon assessments.
