Kratos Composite Engineering to Deliver Unmanned Aerial Target Systems to Swedish FMV

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions has declared that its newly acquired subsidiary, CEI (Composite Engineering) has been presented with $11.9 M single award baseline contract from Swedish FMV for the delivery of unmanned aerial targets and related hardware to the Vidsel Test Range.

Based on the contract, specialized hardware and equipment will be provided by three Kratos entities:

  • Ft. Walton Beach, FL-based Micro Systems will support the program by supplying the command and control ground station, and avionics, target test set deployed for the target drone.
  • CEI, located in Sacramento, CA, will deliver high performance aerial target drones, launch equipment, spares, training, integration support, ground support equipment, and program management.
  • Based in Lancaster, PA, Herley Industries will supply high performance radar altimeters.

With deliveries scheduled to conclude in 2013, there will be instant initiation of the baseline contract performance. The options applicable for hardware throughout 2017 are valued at up to an extra $8.3M, besides the value of the baseline contract. Unmanned aerial target drone systems are used effectively as high fidelity enemy threat surrogates, through which the operation efficiency of the threat aircraft and missiles are being simulated by worldwide militaries for weapons testing and training requisites.

According to the President of Kratos Unmanned Systems Solutions Division, Richard Selvaggio, delivering drones to the Swedish FMV is another milestone for CEI within the international markets. Following the achievement of this award, CEI products will assist global friendly forces that promote test and training activities in this international location. The systems will continue to remain in service for a long time at supreme test and evaluation ranges located in Europe, near the Arctic Circle.
