Kratos to support RSNF training
Kratos Defense and Security Solutions has received a foreign military sales (FMS) indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract worth $46 million to provide training-related products and services to the Royal Saudi Naval Forces (RSNF), the company announced on 5 September.
The contract, which will fulfil part of a US government FMS agreement, will see Kratos provide manpower, personnel and training planning as well as instructional services for a broad array of missions, functions and tasks.
The first task order, valued at $24.1 million, will provide contractor support services to all levels of RSNF training along with other logistical requirements in Saudi Arabia. Across future task orders, Kratos will deploy personnel in-country to provide training related products and services for a three-year period.
The contract aims to sustain levels of military preparedness and performance, increasing the protection of critical industrial infrastructure, and strengthen defence interoperability with US and other allied forces.
Jose Diaz, Sr VP of Kratos training division, said: ‘The award is another example of the rapid and successful international expansion of our training services in areas including the Middle-East, Australia and Europe.
'More importantly, this award provides Kratos the opportunity to aid US efforts to support its allies through our extensive portfolio of military-focused aircrew and maintenance technical training skills, programmatic and logistics support and instructional services for ground, sea and air platforms.’
