Kratos wins jet target work

3rd October 2019 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kratos Defense & Security Solutions’ Unmanned Systems Division has received a $5 million contract for mission system integration and test tactical jet target drone work from an undisclosed customer. 

Work under this contract award will be performed primarily at the division’s facilities in Sacramento, California, and the company says that due to competitive, customer-related considerations no additional information can be provided.

‘As a specialist in jet unmanned aircraft development and production, we pride ourselves on being the “platform” or “truck” and being agnostic with respect to the mission systems we are able to integrate/carry/support,’ Steve Fendley, president of Kratos’ Unmanned Systems Division, said.

‘This key contract is another example illustrating our ability to incorporate special (non-Kratos) systems into our growing tactical drone suite, and demonstrates the ability for Kratos’ survivable unmanned jet aircraft to perform as multi-mission UAS.’

‘This contract award is another important step in the missionisation and ultimate fielding of Kratos tactical unmanned aerial drone systems,’ Eric DeMarco, president and CEO of Kratos, added.
