Kratos Defense & Rocket Support Services (KDRSS) has received a contract to support the Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO-EIS) Army Logistics Transformation III (ALTIII) project.

Kratos Defense & Rocket Support Services (KDRSS) has received a contract to support the Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO-EIS) Army Logistics Transformation III (ALTIII) project.

The subcontract is worth around $14.9m and was awarded by Bristol Bay Native Corporation’s subsidiary Vista Technical Services.

Kratos will provide services in support of the Army Enterprise System Integration Program (AESIP), General Funds Enterprise Business Systems (GFEBS), and Global Combat Support System-Army (GCSS-Army).

The company will also support the Logistics Modernization Program (LMP), known as Logistics Information Warehouse (LIW), as well as the Virtual Contracting Enterprise (VCE), and Commander’s Risk Reduction Dashboard.

Kratos Defense & Rocket Support Services president David Carter said: “This award allows us to expand and continue our support to the ALT initiatives. We are very excited to work with our new partner Vista Technical Services and continue supporting PEO-EIS.”

The firm will perform the contract work at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.

KDRSS won a US Army contract in May to develop and demonstrate a tethered high-power microwave recorder and electronic attack target (THREAT) system.

The system is intended to be used to evaluate the ability of high-power microwave systems to defeat small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS). KDRSS is a division of Kratos Defense & Security Solutions.

Separately, Kratos has been awarded orders for microwave electronic products in support of command, control, communication, computing, and combat systems (C5).

The company has not disclosed the identity of the customers. The cumulative value of the awards is around $16.3m.

Kratos Microwave Electronics Division president Yonah Adelman said: “These recent contract awards support our business unit’s near all-time high backlog and the future growth trajectory we are forecasting for the business.”
