Kratos Defense and Security Solutions (KTOS) announced that it had won a contract to provide “Innovative Missile Design, Multi-Spectral Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) Testing, Simulation, and Sensor Technology Development” to the U.S. Army. The contract is worth up to $25 million if all options and work is executed.

Kratos and its team members will provide support to the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) at Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville, AL. The first part of the contract to be executed will involve development of innovative missile design and simulation and test technologies. Redstone is the base for the Army’s PEO (Missile and Space) and PEO (Aviation). Anti-tank, air defense and other missile programs such as the Hellfire, Javelin and PATRIOT are developed and managed there.
