Ammo Modernization under the Navy's Procurement of Ammo, supports the modernization of ground-delivered Class V(W) ammunition for the Marine Corps. This program aims to enhance Marine Corps readiness for new Marine Littoral Regiment operations, particularly in Littoral Operations in Contested Environments (LOCE) and Indo-Pacific regions. The budget facilitates the procurement of technical analysis and labor from Naval Surface Warfare Centers (NSWCs) Corona, Crane, Indian Head, and Dahlgren Divisions to acquire modernized ammunition. Additionally, it supports life cycle management functions to maintain the USMC ammunition inventory through quality assurance programs, ensuring safety and reliability during training and operational scenarios.

The Ammo Modernization program also focuses on technical efforts such as systems assessments, service life analysis, testing and evaluations, technical drawing packages (TDPs), and malfunction investigations. It is an ongoing level-of-effort program that will exist as long as the USMC maintains ammunition. The budget increase from FY 2023 to FY 2024 supports annual program requirements associated with the procurement and improvement of ammunition through technical, engineering, safety, and production assessment modernization efforts. The consolidation of budget lines starting in FY 2024 aims to facilitate accurate budgeting and execution for program requirements supporting the procurement and improvement of ammunition for the Marine Corps.
