Kratos Defense & Security : Provides Multiple Advanced Missile Targets For Flight Test Aegis Weapon System 33 (FTM-33)

09/09/2021 | 08:02am EDT

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that its Space & Missile Defense Systems Business Unit, a part of Kratos’ Defense & Rocket Support Services Division, supported the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) and the United States Navy in the successful launch of two SRBM targets during the execution of Flight Test Aegis Weapon System 33 (FTM-33). The flight test mission was the most complex mission executed by MDA and the third flight test of an Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense-equipped vessel using the SM-6 Dual II missile. A total of four SM-6 Dual II missiles were launched on July 24 against a raid of two advanced guided ballistic missile targets in broad ocean area northwest of Hawaii.

Kratos, along with the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division’s White Sands Detachment (NSWC PHD WSD), provided the guided missile targets for the exercise which featured Kratos’ Oriole Rocket System with Thrust Vector Control. The Kratos guided targets met all test objectives for the mission after being launched successfully from the Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) on Kauai. The Arleigh Burke class destroyer, USS Ralph Johnson (DDG 114) was the firing ship for the test, employing four SM-6 Dual II interceptors. The SM-6 Dual II missile is designed for use in terminal phase engagements of short-to-medium range ballistic missiles.  

Dave Carter, President of the Kratos Defense & Rocket Support Services (KDRSS) Division, said, "The Kratos team derives a great deal of satisfaction from consistently providing all manner of successful targets in support of advancing the US Military’s warfighting capabilities and objectives. This is just another example of the exceptional work that the talented team of professionals at NSWC and Kratos Space & Missile Defense Systems is capable of. I am very proud of all that our team accomplished in supporting the MDA’s most complex mission to date."
