Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, an industry-leading provider of high-performance, jet-powered unmanned aerial systems, announced today that through multiple contracts, Kratos has and is continuing to evolve and apply its XQ-58A Tactical UAS with a focus on experimentation to support operational missions and employment to satisfy multiple existing and forming application sets for the U.S. Department of Defense.
“Late 2022 and early 2023 were and are expected to continue to be exciting times for high performance jet drone systems. World events, budget realities, and technology are intersecting to illustrate the incredible capability that these systems enable through unique and, in some cases, unconventional approaches that result in low-risk, budget-achievable solutions for the 21st century defense needs. Kratos is incredibly excited to be a major part of this ground-breaking evolution,” said Steve Fendley, President of Kratos Unmanned Systems Division.
