National Security Solutions provider Kratos Defense & Security Solutions has won a contract to support a US military combat system.

The $6.8m contract has been awarded to Kratos’ Command, Control, Communications, Computing, Combat & Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) division.

The unit will be responsible to deliver support equipment for the combat system.

The company will engineer and produce specialised tactical mobility equipment.

The combat system will be used by the US Armed Forces’ various branches.

The exact location where the work on the system will be done has not been revealed, however, Kratos noted that it will be carried out at its secure production facilities.

The company has not disclosed further details about the contract due to certain related considerations.

Kratos C5ISR division president Tom Mills said: “The Kratos team is proud to support this critical program, which provides enhanced capability for the expeditionary Warfighter.”

In January, Kratos’ C5ISR Modular Systems division was awarded a contract for the production of a new Combat System Program of record.

The initial $2.7m production order is a long-term, multi-year contract that aims to develop the national security platform.

Kratos designs modular systems for strategic electronic warfare and directed energy programmes.

Some of the company’s key products include complex fabrication of tactical mobility platforms for radar threat simulators and hypersonic programmes, custom transportable simulator and training systems for aircraft, and mobile air traffic control tower platforms.
