Kratos Rolls Out New BQM-177A Target Drone

Realistic Anti-Ship Missile Threat Emulation for US Navy

 

On 11 July, Kratos Defense & Security will display the first aircraft under a $34.5 million contract with the US Navy to supply high-performance subsonic aerial target drones, which will deliver realistic anti-ship missile threat emulation.

According to the company, the BQM-177A is one of the highest performance unmanned aerial drone systems in the world today, with unmatched flight performance characteristics in multiple key mission areas. Kratos is the sole supplier of high-performance aerial targets to all branches of the US military, manufacturing the platforms in Sacramento, CA.

The BQM-177A is a follow-up to the existing BQM-74E. Kratos officials say the new model offers greater manoeuvrability than its predecessor by offering a new fuselage, high-mounted wings, and an internally integrated MicroTurbo TR-60-5+ jet engine.
