US-based engineering services company Kratos Defense & Security Solutions has secured contract awards for new electronic warfare and communications systems.

With a total value of approximately $10m, the contracts cover the development and delivery of airborne electronic warfare and communications solutions for an unnamed customer.

Work under the new contract awards is due to be carried out at the company’s secure production facilities.

Currently, the company has provided no additional information related to these awards owing to various customer-related considerations.

“Kratos continues to demonstrate our leadership position in supporting our national security customers with affordable, technology-rich products and solutions.”

The company focuses on providing its customers with specialised microwave electronic products in support of missile, radar, missile defence, unmanned aerial drone, electronic warfare, and communications systems.

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions president and chief executive officer Eric M DeMarco said: “Kratos continues to demonstrate our leadership position in supporting our national security customers with affordable, technology-rich products and solutions.
