New Entity Focused on Delivering Enhanced Emirate Defense Capabilities

DULLES, Va.Nov. 9, 2015-- Orbital ATK, Inc. (NYSE:OA), a global leader in aerospace and defense technologies, announced today the establishment of an affiliate in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, to support the company s growing regional defense business. Orbital ATK and Al Tuff International are in partnership in the formation of Orbital ATK LLC.

Orbital ATK and Al Tuff International first joined in opening a branch office in Abu Dhabi in March 2010. As a result of the many successes of that venture, it is now time to convert that success into a new affiliate company that can have a broader impact in the region. The new company will provide defense product sales and services to customers in the UAE related to its core competencies in small-, medium- and large-caliber ammunition production; precision and strike munitions; special mission aircraft; and Bushmaster cannons.

Orbital ATK has been supporting our Emirati ally for many years with both products and infrastructure support, said Mike Kahn, President of Orbital ATK s Defense Systems Group. Our new Emirati business is important as we further enhance our commitment to being a strong regional partner.

We will strive to add value in the Emirates by the introduction of innovative products, services and technologies, said Chris Beach, General Manager of Orbital ATK LLC. Our company shares the national goals of Emiratisation and supports key partner organizations like the Emirates Defence Industries Companies, Tawazun and Mubadala in achieving their objectives.

Orbital ATK will continue to enhance the defense capability of UAE by expanding its industrial partnerships. The new company will soon move into offices co-located with Al Tuff International in the Addax Commercial Tower on Reem Island.

Orbital ATK s Defense Systems Group is an industry leader in providing innovative and affordable precision and strike weapons, advanced propulsion and hypersonics, missile components across air-, sea- and land-based systems, ammunition and related energetic products.
