Kratos Defense and Security Solutions has secured a three-year, $46M other transaction agreement to help the U.S. Army's Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office develop a testing platform for directed energy weapons.

The company said Tuesday it will create a testbed for the service branch to assess the potential of high-energy laser, high-power microwave and air and missile defense technologies to counter unmanned aerial systems.

Work also includes experimentation with infrastructure and methods to manage DE test programs.

Testbeds will be built to help Army personnel evaluate new HEL and HPM platforms with reduced size, weight and power requirements.

Kratos will perform contract work at company and government facilities located in Huntsville, Ala.
