Phil Carrai, Kratos Partner to Develop Aircrew Training Technology

Phil Carrai, Kratos

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions is partnering with BSC Partners LLC to produce aircrew training products and technology, Kratos announced Tuesday.

Both companies will also focus their efforts through internal research and development.

“With the tempo of military operations declining in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. armed forces will be putting more and more  emphasis on homeland training and training systems,” said Phil Carrai, president of Kratos’ technology and training division.

“That, combined with ongoing budget challenges, means that deployed systems will be upgraded and their life cycle extended.

“This creates an environment of opportunity for Kratos as we work together with our partners to deliver cost effective solutions for aircrews and similar training needs.”

The partnership combines Kratos’ production facility with BSC’s 20 years of experience in helicopter aircrew training systems, said Greg Stanton, BSC’s chief operating officer.

Kratos has developed aircrew products for the H60 platform, including a medevac training system and hoist operations training system.
