Kratos Defense and Security Solutions has received US State Department approval to market its Mako tactical UAS to certain European and Asia Pacific countries, the company announced on 13 March.

The Mako UAS provides fighter-like performance and is designed to function as a wingman to manned aircraft in contested airspace, or be deployed independently or in groups of UAS. The highly manoeuvrable UAS is capable of carrying and operating weapons and advanced sensor systems.

Steve Fendley, unmanned systems division president, Kratos, said: ‘This approval represents another important step in our roadmap of being the global leader of high performance jet unmanned UAS. 

‘These US ally and partner nations represent a key part of our existing, new, and evolving customer base and are a critical element in enabling Kratos to maintain its economy of scale related cost advantage for the tactical UAS that we routinely achieve with our unmanned aerial target systems.’
