Kratos Defense & Security Solutions’ Unmanned Systems Division has received a $3.6 million contract for capability expansion, mission system integration, and test work associated with its high performance tactical jet drone systems.

The work is to be carried out for an unnamed customer.

Kratos’ unmanned aerial drone systems are designed for threat representative target missions to exercise weapon, radar and other systems; and tactical aerial drone systems for strike/ISR and force multiplication missions.

Steve Fendley, president of Kratos Unmanned Systems Division, said: ‘As we made the decision to expand from the unmanned aerial targets arena to also the tactical UAS area, we recognised the need and associated opportunity for many varied missions to be satisfied through configuration of a modular and configurable tactical UAS solution basis. This contract reinforces our ability to respond to the varied mission sets from that single basis.’
