Business Segments Description

Launch Vehicles Division
The Launch Vehicles division includes both small- and medium-class rockets for government, civil and commercial payloads. Our innovative Pegasus® rocket is launched from the Company's "Stargazer" L-1011 carrier aircraft and has proven to be the small space-launch workhorse for U.S. government customers, having conducted 45 missions from six different launch sites worldwide since 1990. Our Minotaur C (Commercial) launch vehicle combines our Pegasus upper-stage motors with a commercially-provided first stage propulsion system for increased performance. Our Minotaur I, IV, V and VI rockets combine decommissioned Minuteman and Peacekeeper rocket motors with proven Company avionics and fairings to provide increased lifting capacity for government-sponsored payloads.

The division’s Antares rocket is a two-stage vehicle (with optional third stage) that provides low-Earth orbit ("LEO") launch capability for payloads weighing over 7,000 kg. The Antares rocket has been used in the execution of the company's Commercial Resupply Services ("CRS I") contract with NASA to deliver cargo to the International Space Station ("ISS"). As a result of an October 2014 launch failure, the Antares design is being upgraded with newly-built RD-181 first stage engines to provide greater payload performance and increased reliability. The Company is modifying the rocket’s first-stage systems in anticipation of hot-fire testing in early 2016, and is currently targeting three launches of the reconfigured Antares rocket in 2016 in connection with CRS-I contract.

As the industry-leading provider of suborbital launch vehicles for the nation's missile defense systems, the division has conducted over 75 launches for the U.S. Missile Defense Agency ("MDA"), the U.S. Air Force, Army and Navy, and allied nations during the last 10 years. Additionally, the division is the sole provider of interceptor boosters for the U.S. Missile Defense Agency's Ground-based Midcourse Defense ("GMD") system designed to intercept and destroy long-range enemy missiles. We are also a primary supplier of highly-reliable target vehicles that serve as "threat simulators" to provide high-fidelity facsimiles of enemy missile threats in the testing and verification of missile defense systems.

Propulsion Systems Division
The Propulsion Systems division is the developmental production center for the Company's solid rocket motors for NASA's current and planned human spaceflight programs, including the Space Launch System ("SLS") heavy lift vehicle and the launch abort system ("LAS") motor for the Orion crew capsule that is designed to safely pull the crew capsule away from the launch vehicle in the event of an emergency during launch.

The division also produces medium-class solid rocket motors for the U.S. Navy's Trident II ("D5") Fleet Ballistic Missile program and conducts solid rocket propulsion sustainment activities for the U.S. Air Force's Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile. These two programs provide the backbone of the United States' strategic deterrence program. Additional solid rocket motors being produced by the division include GEM 60 motors for the Delta IV, Orion® motors for the Company's Pegasus, Taurus, and Minotaur launch vehicles, and CASTOR® motors for the Company's Antares rocket and Taurus rocket, and U.S. Missile Defense Agency targets. The division supplies Orion® motors for all three stages of the GMD system as well as other Orbital ATK launch vehicles. In addition, the division produces advanced flares and decoys that provide illumination for search and rescue missions and countermeasures against missile attacks.

Aerospace Structures Division
The Aerospace Structures division is a provider of advanced composite aircraft components for military and commercial aircraft manufacturers, using highly automated composite fabrication techniques, including automated fiber placement and stiffener forming processes. It provides a wide variety of composite parts for the F-35 II Lightning, a fifth-generation fighter aircraft for the U.S. military and its allies. It also provides composite radomes and apertures for a number of military aircraft and provides wing stiffeners for the A400M military transport aircraft. The division provides very large fiber-placed and hand lay-up structures for the Atlas and Delta launch vehicles, and filament-wound composite cases for solid rocket motors and composite overwrapped pressure vessels.

The division has a commercial aerospace composites center of excellence facility in Clearfield, Utah, to support its commercial aerospace customers, including Airbus, Rolls Royce, and Boeing. The division is under contract to produce the majority of the composite stringers and frames for the Airbus A350 XWB wide-body passenger jetliner. Additional major commercial programs include a partnership with Rolls Royce to produce the aft fan case for the Trent XWB engine, which will be used to power the Airbus A350 aircraft, and a contract to produce composite frames for the Boeing 787-9 and 787-10 commercial aircraft.

Armament Systems Division
The Armament Systems division is home to the Company's precision fire weapons and medium- and large-caliber ammunition programs. It is under contract to produce the Precision Guidance Kit ("PGK") for 155mm artillery and is the developer and producer of the PGK units for 120mm mortars that are fielded as the U.S. Army's Advanced Precision Mortar Initiative. An additional program of note is the XM-25 Counter Defilade Target Engagement System (“XM-25”) under development for the U.S. Army. The division also produces the family of medium-caliber Bushmaster® chain guns and is a global systems designer and integrator of medium-caliber ammunition for integrated gun systems. These gun systems are used on a variety of ground combat vehicles, helicopters and naval vessels, including the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, the Light Armored Vehicle, coastal patrol craft and Apache helicopters. To date, the division has supplied approximately 18,000 medium-caliber gun systems to the U.S. military and allied forces worldwide. New products include a link-fed variant of the Apache gun-system for ground and naval applications. Armament Systems also leads Defense Systems Group's international co-production efforts and provides munitions support to allied nations.
