Orbital ATK moves to full-rate production of its hard target void sensing fuze

DULLES, Va. U.S. Air Force officials selected Orbital ATK for its all-electronic FMU-167/B Hard Target Void Sensing Fuze (HTVSF) under a full-rate production (FRP) contract. The award is worth $23 million following the low-rate initial production contract awarded in 2016.

The HTVSF is an advanced technology, intelligent, cockpit that provides the capability to destroy hard and deeply buried targets. It provides multiple delay arming and detonation times, as well as a void-sensing function, which allows precision activation of the fuze.
