A team comprising subsidiaries of Kratos Defense & Security Solutions and Safran Electronics & Defense has been awarded a prime contract to provide unmanned aerial vehicle launcher systems to the U.S. Army.
The Madison Research Corp.–Robonic team will deliver two KONTIO launchers to the Army’s Program Management Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Targets Management Office under the contract, Kratos said Wednesday.
The service branch will use the Robonic-built platforms to launch Firejet aerial targets from MRC sister company Composite Engineering Inc.
Alabama-based MRC, part of Kratos’ defense rocket and support services division, provides engineering and information technology services to the government sector.
Robonic, a Safran Electronics & Defense company, manufactures launchers for multiple types of air vehicle and operates a UAV test flight center in Kemijarvi, Finland.
