Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Inc. said that one of its divisions received a $17 million contract.
A large U.S. mass-transit authority awarded the deal to Kratos (Nasdaq: KTOS)’s Public Safety & Security Solutions Division, the business said on Feb. 18. Kratos typically does not name the customers for its security systems, saying only that it will provide a system that includes audio and video to a customer that offers rail and mass-transit service.
The deal is one of several that the holding company, based in the San Diego suburb of University City, announced recently.
The previous day, Kratos said that its SAT Corp. subsidiary received a contract to supply electronics to NewSat Ltd., an Australian firm, to monitor a satellite set for launch in 2016. Financial terms of the deal were not released. The deal calls for Kratos to design, manufacture, install, test and deliver the carrier monitoring system. NewSat’s Jabiru-1 is a Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) model A2100 satellite. It will handle data on the Ka band, serving enterprise and government customers in the Middle East, Asia and North Africa.
Separately, Kratos is providing the satellite command and control system for Jabiru-1.
In other news, Kratos announced on Feb. 12 that its Electronic Products division received a $5.9 million order for an unspecified U.S. Navy airborne electronic attack platform. The division will produce integrated microwave assemblies for the platform at its factory in New England.
Kratos employs 3,600 people at its various subsidiaries.
