Kratos Subsidiary Modifies T-72 Tank to Operate Unmanned - top government contractors - best government contracting eventA subsidiary of Kratos Defense & Security Solutions has installed a remote control kit into a T-72 tank to support unmanned operations.

Kratos said Thursday its Micro Systems business converted a T-72 to be controlled by the Army Ground Aerial Target Control System as part of an effort to help the U.S. Army meet its tank target requirement.

AGATCS is a vehicle and datalink agnostic control system that has been integrated with multiple Army air, ground and sea surface target vehicles.

Florida-based Micro Systems collaborated with the Army’s targets management office on the T-72 modification project.

Micro Systems is part of Kratos’ unmanned systems segment.
