The US Army has awarded Northrop Grumman a $533.9 million multi-option artillery fuze contract.

The contract runs through July 26, 2027, and work locations and funding will be determined with each order, the Department of Defense announced in a contract notice.

The M782 Multi-Option Artillery Fuze (MOFA) supports all types of 105mm and 155mm artillery projectiles. Operates in Four Modes

The MOFA can operate in four modes: proximity, precision time, impact, and delay, and can be set for any time from 0.5 to 199.9 seconds in 0.1-second increments.

The MOFA is automatically preset before launch through an inductive communication link such as the M1155 portable inductive fuze setter or the TM 9-1290-210-12&P. The fuze setter also confirms the mission data transferred to the fuze.
