The award, issued by Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD), is contained in a U.S. FMS agreement with a potential value to Kratos of $100 million.
Kratos’ initial award is $46 million over three years.

Additionally, the award is expected to enhance U.S. foreign policy and national security objectives by helping to improve the security of its strategic regional partner.
