Chemring Ordnance Awarded APOBS Contract

Chemring Group PLC ("Chemring") is pleased to announce that its US subsidiary, Chemring Ordnance, Inc. of Perry, Florida, has been awarded a contract to manufacture the MK7 MOD 2 Anti-Personnel Obstacle Breaching System ("APOBS") for the US Army and Marine Corps. The total estimated contract value is in excess of $150 million over three years if all option quantities are exercised.

Dr David Price, Chief Executive of Chemring, commented "The APOBS contract award expands Chemring's offerings in the demolition stores market and underpins the continued growth of Chemring Ordnance. We are delighted about the US Army's continued confidence in Chemring to provide protection for their soldiers."


The APOBS is a self-contained, one-shot, expendable linear demolition charge, which can be transported and deployed by a two person team, and is capable of safely clearing a footpath through anti-personnel mines and multi-strand wire obstacles.
