MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 29 (UPI) -- ATK of Minnesota is showcasing artillery and mortar GPS guidance and fusing system at London's 2011 Defense and Security Equipment International exposition.

The Global Positioning System guidance and fusing system transforms conventional 155mm artillery projectiles and 120mm mortar cartridges into precision munitions.

ATK said it will also show its recently upgraded AAR-47 missile warning system, which provides enhanced protection through the detection of smaller-caliber weapon fire and rocket propelled grenades.

Also on display will be its Eagle Industries and BlackHawk brand tactical gear and apparel for security, law enforcement and military personnel. In addition, ATK's Federal Premium and Speer lines of ammunition will be featured, including long-range precision rifle; barrier defeating; non-toxic; short-barrel carbine; and law enforcement high-performance handgun service ammunition.

Of special interest, it said, will be its Advanced Anti- Radiation Guided Missile for air defense and strike missions.

Other rockets and ammunition for fixed-wing and rotary aircraft will also be shown.

The exposition is Sept. 13-16 in London.
