Kratos Awarded $30M in C5ISR DoD Contracts
The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has recently awarded Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. approximately $30 million in contract awards for Command, Control, Computing, Communication, Combat, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Systems. These awards are focused primarily on missile defense related combat systems for U.S. national security.
“We believe that these recent contract awards are representative of Kratos’ positioning as a disruptive leading technology systems, products and intellectual property company, including our focus on unmanned jet drones, space and satellite communications, microwave electronics, next generation jet engines for tactical systems, missile defense and hypersonic vehicles. At Kratos, affordability is a technology, and we are executing on our plan to be an alternative provider to our DoD and national security customer base in our key focus areas,” Eric DeMarco, Kratos Defense president and CEO said in a July 2 announcement.
Kratos said the majority of the work will be completed over the next two years and that more information could not be revealed due to the nature of the national security program awards.
