Members of our management team have extensive experience growing businesses organically, as well as through acquisitions.


 Kratos maintains a number of key contract vehicles and task orders for the federal government. Kratos is widely recognized as a highly visible player among the leading government contractors for the quality of our work, our skilled professionals and technicians, as well as  our partnerships and long-term customer relationships.

Kratos recognizes the important contributions small businesses make in bringing forward innovation while creating job growth and sustaining our country’s economy. We believe that small businesses, including small disadvantaged, women-owned, veteran-owned, service disabled veteran-owned, HUBZone firms, as well as historically black colleges and universities/minority institutions bring forward agility and expertise to assist Kratos in supporting our customers and their missions.

Our collective experience and innovative ideas are vital to jointly building business while solving our customers’ requirements. Teaming with small businesses is fundamental to Kratos’ business objectives:

  • Maintain our competitive position as an industry leader

  • Unique capabilities relevant to a specific contract or RFP
  • Past performance that is relevant to a forthcoming RFP

Kratos seeks to engage small businesses not only as a subcontractor, but will also work with select qualified small businesses in pursuing strategic small business set-asides where Kratos can bring strength to the team. Primarily, we seek companies that are committed to building long-term relationships.

Kratos is committed to maintaining its reputation as a company with the highest standards of business conduct. The Company requires its employees, agents, contractors and suppliers to behave in an ethical manner and to comply with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations.
