Kratos Defense and Security Solutions Inc. recently received $2.2 million in contract awards for one of its newest jet-powered unmanned aircraft projects, the business said on Aug. 31.
Kratos (Nasdaq: KTOS) offered few other details, including the type of aircraft or the name of the customer. The deal includes related services. Kratos said it is scheduled to deliver its product in the next 12 months.
The University City-based business used this summer’s Paris Air Show to unveil two projects, the XQ-222 Valkyrie and the UTAP-22 Mako drones, which are both what the U.S. Air Force calls low-cost attritable aircraft. Kratos’ unmanned aircraft unit in Sacramento also makes target drones.
The business said in early June that it received an order for six high-performance unmanned aircraft from a U.S. government customer.
