Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that it has received a single contract award valued at over $35 million to deliver four MH-60R Naval Aircrew Training Systems (NATS) and four MH-60S Aircrew Virtual Environment Trainer (AVET) devices for NAVAIR. The period of performance under this new contract award is five years. This contract will be executed in partnership with the prime contractor, BSC Partners LLC.
The NATS and AVET training devices provide a blend of virtual and physical environments for training aircrew members of the MH-60 platform. Aircrew members will be trained in crew coordination, gunnery training, sonar, hoist, search and rescue, and vertical replenishment to include external operations.
This award builds on the MEDEVAC Crew Training system contract recently received to develop UH-60 Black Hawk MEDEVAC air crew training systems for the U.S. Army. Kratos will provide multiple simulated full-fidelity simulators to train Flight Medic students in the operations of all on-board systems. „We are pleased to continue the advancement of highly critical aircrew training requirements with the latest deployment of these high fidelity, immersive training devices,” said Jose Diaz, Senior Vice President of Training Solutions. „As a principle provider of air crew training, Kratos is committed to providing these devices and enhancing the training and survivability of aircrew members for the MH-60 platforms.”
