Kratos wins P-8A contract
A subsidiary of Kratos Defense & Security solutions, Herley Industries, has been awarded a contract by a major US prime contractor for the production of Integrated Microwave Assemblies (IMAs) to be used in the US Navy's P-8A aircraft. The contract is worth approximately $1 million.
The P-8A Poseidon is the US Navy's newest maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft. It is a long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft capable of broad-area, maritime and littoral operations.
According to Kratos, this is a follow-on contract for the Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) for the P-8A programme, which follows the successful completion of the development phase.
