Kratos UAVs used in war games

27th June 2019 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team in London


Kratos Defense & Security Solutions announced on 24 June that its Unmanned Systems Division had completed missile firing exercises with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) and Germany Navy.

The exercises, hosted by FMV in the open water outside of Härnösand, Sweden, made use of the MQM-178 Firejet and BQM-167i made by Kratos. These aerial target aircraft carried out 19 flights, in both high and low altitude patterns, allowing the German Navy to test a variety of weapon systems by running attack scenarios.

Several scenarios involved a dual flight configuration, having two target UAVs flying in formations and patterns simulating ship-defeating threats.

‘We’re honoured and excited to be a key part of this important exercise with our allied war fighters around the world. The outstanding multi-year relationship we continue to share with our valued customer and partner, the Swedish FMV, is key to our opportunity and success in both preparation and conduct of critical large-scale missions’ said Steve Fendley, president of Kratos’ Unmanned Systems Division.
