DRS TECHNOLOGIES TEAMS WITH KAIROS AUTONOMI, INC. TO PRODUCE AND SUPPORT MOVING LAND TARGETS


DRS Technologies, Inc. a Finmeccanica Company, announced its Sustainment Systems division has teamed with Kairos Autonomi, Inc. to jointly market, produce and support autonomous and semi-autonomous moving land targets for advanced aircraft training for U.S. and international military customers.

The partnership will leverage Kairos’ Pronto4Robotic Appliqué Kit operate-by-wire technology, which converts manned vehicles into optionally unmanned vehicles with the ability to operate either by teleoperation, semi-autonomously or autonomously. Coupled with DRS’ U.S. and international reach, program management, manufacturing, field service support and logistics capability, the team is positioned well with the technology, skills and resources to provide enhanced and more realistic pilot training scenarios for ground targets at substantially lower cost than currently available in the market.

“Providing air forces with more realistic and robust ground training scenarios will substantially increase the effectiveness of pilots and enhance the safety of ground forces. Kairos’ unique drive-by-wire technology and proven success in the unmanned systems market, coupled with DRS’ capabilities in intelligent systems and global customer reach offers a cost-effective way to improve the training of military forces around the world,” says Joseph Matteoni, vice president and general manager of DRS Sustainment Systems, Inc. “We look forward to bringing the best of our two companies together to assist our U.S. and international customers and war fighters in fielding the best training solutions in the world.”

Currently operating under a program of record with the U.S. Navy and programs with several international customers, Kairos has already begun penetrating the moving land targets market. Kairos’ Pronto4 is a market leader in large vehicle robotic systems worldwide. Employing unique, proprietary technology, Kairos is able to create robotic solutions from ordinary ground vehicles in a matter of hours through its unique hardware and software interfaces into existing vehicle systems. This capability creates the possibility of converting existing vehicles in inventory into advanced targeting platforms for aircraft training and providing real-time feedback on pilot performance, all at a fraction of the cost of existing training methods and technologies.

“The Pronto4 is the most widely used robotic appliqué kit for full-size vehicles in the world by volume,” says Troy Takach, President of Kairos Autonomi. “We believe this agreement with DRS will further our goal of providing capable and cost-effective robotic technologies to a wide range of applications worldwide.”
