OKC’s Kratos lands millions more in drone contracts

A day after announcing it had received a $6 million contract order for its high performance jet powered unmanned aerial target drone system, Kratos Defense and Security Solutions Inc. said it had received a $2.7 million production order on its new Combat System Program.

Based in San Diego but with manufacturing operations in Oklahoma City, Kratos did not elaborate on the contract stating, “Due to customer related, competitive and other considerations, no additional information will be provided related to this recent contract award.”

The company only stated that “Work under this recent contract award will be performed in secure Kratos production facilities.”

Tom Mills, President of Kratos C5ISR Modular Systems Division, said, “A key element of our strategy is to achieve designed in positions or contract awards on large, long term, multi-year C5ISR programs of record, and we are proud to have been selected to support this national security priority platform.”

Earlier in the week, the company said it had received $6 million in high performance jet powered unmanned aerial target drone system orders and related ancillary and spares support equipment.
Steve Fendley, President of Kratos Unmanned Systems Division, said, “These orders represent the latest evolution of our target systems which continue to support the evolving needs of our customers.  The recapitalization of strategic weapon systems by the U.S. and its allies to address new technology and state of the art threats of our adversaries is driving demand for Kratos high performance, threat representative target drones systems, and we are proud to support our customers’ and the warfighters’ operational readiness.”
