White Plains NY (SPX) Jan 09, 2006
ITT Industries has announced it has received a contract from the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command for lethality testing and criteria development in support of the Department of Defense Missile Defense Agency.

Under the cost-plus contract worth an estimated value of more than $57 million ITT will provide analysis, validation and development support for kinetic energy and directed energy missile defense systems.

Work will be performed by ITT's Advanced Engineering and Sciences division. The contract is for one-base year with four additional one-year options.

ITT will apply its expertise in threat missile systems, lethality testing and high fidelity models to define kill modes, determine lethal damage requirements and develop and validate criteria for interceptor components from initial computational analysis through development.

The tests and analyses performed by ITT will provide weapon developers and missile defense architecture planners with the information necessary to design solutions capable of defeating hostile missiles equipped with weapons of mass destruction.
