Kratos High Performance Unmanned Aerial Jet Target Drone Systems Headline War Games Exercise with Swedish FMV and German Navy

SAN DIEGO, Calif.- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that its Unmanned Systems Division successfully completed Swedish Defence Materiel Administration’s (FMV) missile firing exercise with the German Navy. The exercises, hosted by FMV, utilized the Kratos MQM-178 Firejet and BQM-167i aerial target aircraft and support services.

During this live-fire exercise in the open water outside of Härnösand, Sweden, 19 Kratos target flights were completed in both high and low altitude patterns allowing the German Navy to run attack scenarios to test multiple weapon systems. Several missions were operated in dual flight configuration, having two target drones flying in patterns and formations to simulate certain ship-defeating threats.

Kratos Unmanned Systems is an industry innovator and leading provider of affordable, high performance jet powered unmanned aerial drone systems for tactical missions and target applications.

Steve Fendley, Unmanned Systems Division President of Kratos, said, “We’re honored and excited to be a key part of this important exercise with our allied warfighters around the world. The outstanding multi-year relationship we continue to share with our valued customer and partner, the Swedish FMV, is key to our opportunity and success in both preparation and conduct of critical large-scale missions.”
