With more than 100 active programs, Orbital ATK’s Missile Products Division has been an industry-leading developer and manufacturer of defense and aerospace components and systems for nearly 75 years. We’ve stayed on pace with technology advancements all along the way, contributing to the success of countless missions. We’re continually developing and reimaging products to meet or exceed today’s program requirements. Our product line includes innovative and advanced missile and space propulsion and control systems, warheads, bomb fuzes, solid and liquid propellants, smokeless gun powder, and high-strength, heat resistant composite structures.
Propulsion Systems & Controls
Orbital ATK Missile Products Divisions’ extensive product portfolio is comprised largely of propulsion systems for tactical missiles, missile interceptors, launch vehicles and spacecraft. Our designs are powered by solid and “green” liquid propellants, as well as air breathing and hypersonic propulsion technology.
As part of Orbital ATK’s mission to develop new technologies and products to meet emerging needs, Missile Products Division developed Lethality Enhanced Ordnance (LEO) – a scalable, performance-enhancing warhead technology that contains no sub-munitions thereby eliminating the dangers of unexploded ordnance.
Fuzing and Sensors
Orbital ATK excels in the design and manufacture of technologically advanced bomb fuzing and proximity sensors. Our sensors detect the height of a weapon above a target and operate in an electronic countermeasure environment. Our fuze portfolio includes electronic and electro-mechanical bomb fuzes that are capable of penetrating deeply buried targets, engaging high speed, maneuverable surface threats, and delaying detonation for mission success.
Energetics and Commercial Powder
Orbital ATK has a long history of producing high-quality, high-performance gun powder that is found in many major brands on the market today. Our powders are available in tailorable formulations based on cartridge type. We also manufacture and bottle powder for the consumer reloading marketing and import high performing rifle powders for U.S. distribution.
In addition to R&D work in the areas of fuel reformation, hydrogen generation and storage, enhanced oil recovery and clean coal technologies, Orbital ATK’s proprietary propellant sticks are a key component to a new lower cost oil, gas and geothermal well stimulation process.
PIC Code Software
Orbital ATK offers two software suites: LSP and MAGIC. LSP is 3D electromagnetic PIC (particle-in-cell) code designed for large scale plasma simulations such as E-beam driven radiography, pulsed power accelerator design, heavy-ion fusion and petawatt laser-interaction. MAGIC is capable of designing and refining a wide range of electromagnetic devices.
