The replacement for the Army’s 5.56mm Squad Automatic Weapon could be an entirely new type of light machine gun that fires not only a different caliber round, but caseless ammunition.

That’s because one of the five companies recently awarded contracts to produce a weapon prototype by this time next year has been building weapons to fire that type of ammo for the past 14 years.

A notice posted Thursday included the identities of the five companies:

AAI Corporation Textron Systems in Hunt Valley, Maryland.
FN America Columbia, South Carolina.
General Dynamics-OTS Inc.
PCP Tactical, LLC. in Vero Beach, Florida.
Sig Sauer Inc. in Newington, New Hampshire.
