Next Evolution of Kratos Mako Tactical Unmanned Aerial Drone System Completes Successful Flight Test Series

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider recently completed a flight test series evaluating the next evolution of the UTAP-22 Mako Unmanned Aerial System that was first introduced and demonstrated in late 2015.  The Mako has been enhanced with a suite of mission systems typically employed on manned aircraft and now integrated with the unmanned Mako drone system.  By combining the Mako's autonomous capabilities previously demonstrated through single UAS, multi-UAS, and manned/unmanned collaborative operations with the latest mission set capability, the operational utility of the Mako is now established at the next level.

For information on the introduction of the system and corresponding flight tests, see the Kratos Press releases regarding, "UTAP-22" from December 2015.
