Kratos Defense & Security Partners with U.S. Navy to Develop a Hypersonic Test Vehicle

Kratos Defense & Security, an Anne Arundel-based defense contractor, has partnered with the U.S. Navy to develop a hypersonic test vehicle. The contract will develop an estimated 20 to 25 jobs with the majority in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math). Once developed, the test vehicle will be used by the U.S. Department of Defense and capable of moving faster than five times the speed of sound. “We are proud to be the first industry partner in Maryland, especially right here in Glen Burnie, Maryland, to be developing this kind of a system,” said Josh Peterson, senior vice president of space and missile defense systems for Kratos.
