Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that it has received a delivery order valued at $22 million and funded at $11.8 million for satellite and communication system products, hardware and equipment. This modification is against a previously-awarded contract.
This award is for mission activity and maneuver planning, telemetry processing, commanding, orbit and attitude management, resource management, space vehicle and ground system simulation, security, support planning and execution, training and testing.
