  3. GOCO Production History WWII 1941-1945 VIETNAM 1966-1975 KOREA 1950-1953 15 Plants 6 Plants 5 Plants 1 Plant ATK USA Olin Remington Arms Note: Peak Production all 16 plants approx. 1.8 B rds/ month

  4. Small Cal Base Capacity • Sources Available • GOCO Primary Producer at Current 1.2B Capacity • Identified 350M Commercial Capacity of US Spec Ammo • Identified 500M Additional Sources NATO and Similar Capacity 1.5 Base Capacity 1.550B 1.2 0.9 Ctgs in B 0.6 Lake City 0.3 0 GOCO Other Sources (Built to US TDP) * Emergency Capacity Non-TDP Sources*

  7. Small Cal Base Risks • Age • Most GOCO plant buildings, part of equipment and infrastructure date to WW II • Single Point Risks • TNR reactor • DISRUPTION OF PRIMER PRODUCTION LONGER THAN 3 WEEKS • Most efficient operation drives many sole/single source • Unique TDP • Ammo planned for use in a wide variety of weapons • Ammo required to function all over world • Changes in weapons platforms offer opportunity to adjust TDP for more affordable production • Preservation of current investment • Mechanism needed to preserve current capacity when requirements go down in future • Funding to layaway and maintain current capacity will be needed or base will shrink once again • Each time it becomes more difficult to bring back • Future Planning • Need to define production line needs to deal with fluctuating requirements • A long term plan needs to be developed for flexible and sustainable small caliber production base

  8. Industrial Base Actions • Industrial Base • LCAAP Modernization • Update production equipment • Automate primer manufacture • Increase automatic inspection systems • Capacity expanded to 1.5B per year • Second Source • Establishes ready access to elements of the commercial base through a previously contracted agent • Capacity established at 300M to 500M per year • TDP Improvements – reduce unnecessary production costs • Tolerance study bullet and case • Metallurgical requirement evaluation. • Ignition train review (alternate propellant study)
