Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems - Small Caliber Systems - Lake City Ammunition Plant

I do not keep up with Defense industry Mergers and acquisitions, and nested ownerships. But, I was I noticed in GoogleMaps that if you search for Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, it finds it and calls it "Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems - Small Caliber Systems - Lake City Ammunition Plan".
I think Alliant was operating it until about a year ago. Then, I thought the contract shifted to Remington or Winchester (but what do I know).
Apparently Northrop Grumman is owner of something, I do not know what, that is the new operating contractor of LCAAP.
I hope someone can fill in the blanks.

I think GoogleMaps might be a bit out of date.
The Lake City Army Ammunition Plant is run by under a competed contract arrangement.
Northrop Grumman had the last contract, but they did not win the re-competition.

Grumman owned Alliant/ATK? (I did not know that). They were the previous operator and towards the end LC became more available, even some tin-stained. I thought Winchester/Olin got the contract.
