The State Department has authorized Kratos Defense and Security Solutions to market a tactical unmanned aerial system in select countries within Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
Mako is designed to operate independently or in conjunction with other UAS platforms to support manned aircraft in a contested airspace environment, Kratos said Tuesday.
The UAS has a capacity to carry weapons and sensors and was previously flown in various military exercises.
Steve Fendley, president of Kratos’ unmanned systems division, said that U.S. allies and partner nations represent a key part of the company’s existing and new customer base.
The company works with DOS-authorized foreign customers on multiple programs, contracts, systems and technology products.
Kratos added it offers aerial target systems to U.S. and international defense organizations.
