National Security Solutions provider Kratos Defense & Security Solutions has received a contract from an undisclosed customer.

The award is related to command, control, communication, computing, combat, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C5ISR) System.

The contract is valued at $14m. Further details of the customer have not been disclosed by the company because of competitive, customer-related and other considerations.

Kratos provides C5ISR systems and solutions in support of unmanned aerial drone, radar and missile defence.

It also supplies products for high-powered directed energy and chemical, biological, radiation, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) detection programmes for national security missions.

Kratos C5ISR Division president Tom Mills said: “Kratos is the recognised provider of rapidly developed and fielded affordable products and systems.

“Kratos C5ISR Division is focused on supporting our customers in addressing the recapitalisation of strategic weapon systems to address increasing peer and near-peer threats to the US and its allies.

“All of Kratos is proud to support this customer in this mission-critical priority national related security programme.”

Under the contract, work on the C5ISR systems will be carried out in secure Kratos manufacturing facilities.

Earlier this year, Kratos’ C5ISR division won a $6.8m valued contract to support a US military combat system.

Under the contract, the company will deliver support equipment for the combat system. It will engineer and produce specialised tactical mobility equipment.
