Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, a San Diego, California-based national-security services provider, recently gave a $32 million task order to Digital Fusion Solutions to help develop a weaponized high-energy laser.

Digital Fusion Solutions is a subsidiary of Kratos’ Defense and Rocket Support Services (DRSS) Division.

The deal comes under Kratos’ U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command (USASMDC/ARSTRAT) Integrated Test and Analysis Contract (ITAC) Prime Contract.

The task initially was intended as a $7 million contract to assist Space and Missile Defense Command with high-energy laser (HEL) system engineering, integration and test support.

With the new contract, Kratos also will provide software support, training and development enhancements, as well as operations and maintenance to ensure proper conditions during testing and demonstration of HEL systems.

“We are very excited with this win because it enables us to expand our technical expertise in high-energy lasers while continuing to work closely with our longtime valued customer, U.S. Army SMDC,"
DRSS President Dave Carter said.

Kratos’ DRSS division provides products and services for U.S. national security programs, including hypersonics,  ballistic missile defense, electromagnetic railgun technology, lasers and other combat systems.
