NIOA and Day & Zimmermann have signed a new three-year Memorandum of Understanding, which includes a four-year supply program of 81mm HE and practice mortar ammunition for the ADF as well as the opportunity to provide other Day & Zimmermann munitions products suitable for export to Australia.
The new arrangement will strengthen and extend the current MOU and collaborative arrangements that aid the growth of sovereign munitions capability in Australia.
“We look forward to continuing to work with NIOA in meeting the ammunition requirements for the ADF,” Michael H. Yoh, President of Day & Zimmermann Munitions and Government said. “Day & Zimmermann’s core competencies in the design and production of ammunition coupled with our many years of operating ammunition plants for the US Army makes us a great partner in complementing NIOA in Australia.”
Day & Zimmermann’s expertise includes mortar ammunition, artillery ammunition, tank ammunition, grenades, 40mm ammunition and breaching charges.
