Kratos Defense & Security Solutions will support the US Air Force’s Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) programme under a contract announced on 26 February.

The contract, awarded by Northrop Grumman, will see Kratos provide vehicle transporters, including highly complex missile transporters and payload transporters, as part of efforts to replace the legacy Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) weapon system.

GBSD is the US Air Force’s programme to modernise its ICBM force, the land-leg of the nuclear triad.

Tom Mills, president, Kratos C5ISR Division, said: ‘We are extremely proud to have been selected by Northrop Grumman to support the critical GBSD programme.

‘Kratos’ efforts will help preserve strategic deterrence against our adversaries by modernising aging ICBM infrastructure. GBSD will remain a vital part of our national security for many decades.’
