ATK selected to provide thermal control subsystem for DARPA ISIS airship

ATK (NYSE: ATK) today announced that it has been selected to provide the Thermal Control Subsystem for the Integrated Sensor is Structure (ISIS) program. The contract, awarded by Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), is a critical component of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) ISIS Airship. Lockheed Martin leads an industry team in the development of an airship-based autonomous unmanned sensor with unique capabilities to track ground and air targets.

"This award is a strategic win for ATK because it marks our first thermal award in this high altitude, near-space defense market," said Tom Wilson, vice president and general manager, ATK Spacecraft Systems and Services. "We are a world leader in the design and production of heat transport devices with the corporate commitment and resources to deliver top-quality hardware on schedule. Our record of proven performance will enable us to continue to expand into adjacent markets while exceeding the expectations of our current customers."

The scope of work to be performed on the ISIS program includes designing, developing, building, and testing hardware that performs heat acquisition, heat transport, and heat rejection for two complete thermal systems. The baseline design for both systems is a pumped two-phase fluid loop which interfaces with large, lightweight radiator panels attached to the vehicle powerbay. Work on the contract will be performed at ATK's Beltsville, MD facility.
