Kratos Defense & Security Solutions subsidiary Composite Engineering Inc. was awarded $18.7 million for the Lot 12 option of the Air Force Subscale Aerial Target contract.
The company said Tuesday CEi will provide 21 additional AFSAT aircraft with associated warranty as part of Lot 12.
The target aircraft systems serve as enemy threat surrogates that could simulate the performance characteristics of hostile aircraft and missiles and are used to test and train weapons, Kratos said.
Kratos’ Micro Systems Inc. unit will provide the avionics for the target aircraft.
Production will be carried out in CEi’s facility in Sacramento, California.
