Kratos Completes Intercept Testing Against Multiple Short-Range Ballistic Missile Targets in Hawaii
Kratos Defense and Security Solutions has completed an intercept testing against multiple ballistic missile and anti-ship cruise missile targets, one of the largest integrated air and missile defense events in the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command Area of Responsibility.
The intercept testing demonstrated the ballistic missile defense-configured Aegis Readiness Assessment Vehicle’s capability to detect, track and execute intercepts of two SRBM targets. The testing launched two SRBM targets from the Pacific Missile Range Facility in Hawaii and was successfully intercepted by the USS Carl M. Levin Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, Kratos said.
Dave Carter, Kratos Rocket Systems division president, said the company is working alongside the government to deliver transformative and affordable target systems and vehicles while allowing customers to test solutions through cost-effective multi-system raid scenarios.
Aside from working on short-range ballistic missile targets, Kratos is also working with other military branches to advance new technologies. In November 2022, it collaborated with Dynetics for modular experimental glide bodies carrying hypersonic payloads to be used by the DOD.
The defense contractor is also working with the U.S. Space Force to provide military satellite communications support services to ground systems used by the Command-and-Control System-Consolidated Sustainment and Resiliency program.
