U.K. military supplier says its sales have been swollen by strong demand from the U.S. government.
Chemring makes grenades, battlefield pyrotechnics, detonators, IED detection systems, bomb-disposal tools as well as missile and space-systems.
The firm employs around 2,700 people worldwide at sites in the United States, Norway, Australia and the United Kingdom.
In a trading update Tuesday, Chemring posted revenue of £156.7 million ($200 million) in the six months to the end of August, a 13.4 percent rise on the same period in 2016.
The division which focuses on technology designed to identify and repel military threat was described as "particularly strong", with orders totaling £56.6 million received.
"The majority of these orders were from the U.S. Government for a range of requirements," read the update.
Although revenues rose, the order book as of 31 August was £541.1 million, a fall of a round £15 million from the end of April. The company claimed however that recently placed orders, due to be delivered in 2018, gave it confidence for the near-term.
