The Artillery Integrated Product Team (IPT) is a multidisciplinary group of employees responsible for every phase of development, production and delivery of several Artillery products, spare parts and repair items. These include the M119A2 Towed Howitzer, XM 360 Gun Mount, and spare parts for the M102, M109 and M198. All of these programs have had continued success and significant accomplishments.

The Artillery IPT continues to make great advancements in the production and quality of the M119A2 Howitzer, which provides combat support for our Troops. The first two production guns were delivered in April 2007.   Since then, we have started full rate production.

The Artillery IPT also continues the sustainment of the M198 Howitzer, M102 Lightweight Towed Howitzer and the sustainment of the M1821 series gun mounts for the M109 Self-propelled medium howitzers, throughout the world supplying spare parts as needed while specializing in repair and replacement of the recoil mechanisms.

The team oversees the production of prototype systems like the XM360 program in partnership with Army Research and Development Command.

The Artillery IPT is continuously monitoring its programs throughout the development and production phases in order to deliver continuous improvements to achieve customer satisfaction.
