BAE Systems has been awarded a ten-year operating contract by the US Army to manage, operate and maintain the Radford Army Ammunition Plant in south-west Virginia, US.

The $850m operating contract includes three five-year options which, if fully exercised, will extend the award to 2036.

BAE Ordnance Systems will operate the facility, established in 1941, which manufactures propellants for military munitions.
