Contract Vehicles


TETRAS Overview

Kratos Technology & Training Solutions, Inc. (KTTS) holds a contract for the Test & Evaluation Technologies for Ranges, Armaments & Spectrum (TETRAS) program. The USAF 5-year multiple IDIQ award is targeted at supplying products and capabilities in support of the DoD-wide Test Enterprise, most typically applied to C4ISR, munitions, electronic combat, and spectrum requirements. A broad range of solutions satisfying end-customer requirements can leverage the TETRAS contract vehicle.

Testing modern weapons systems with rapidly changing technologies and tactics are inherent to defense programs. The capability for rapid response, surge capacity, and flexibility to manage unforeseen events is a critical requirement to meet short lead-times and dynamic test requirements. This contract provides a continued capability to respond rapidly to customer test requirements that cannot be accomplished through the normal acquisition cycle, particularly when acquiring highly specialized hardware/software. Implementing improvements and upgrades of test capability to support developmental test (DT) and operational test (OT) of C4ISR, munitions, and electronic combat systems and next-generation operational environments is critical to the test mission and the warfighter.

Typical TETRAS technical requirements include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Spectrum management
  • Cyber threat testing
  • Test instrumentation
  • Data & comm links
  • Ground & airborne networks
  • System of systems hardware/software integration
  • Modeling/simulation
  • Virtual exercises and scene/threat generation
  • Hardware-in-the-loop (HITL) systems
  • JMETC/TENA compatible networks
  • Electronic combat test & evaluation
  • Jammers
  • High energy lasers, high powered microwave
  • Test range support: design/development, prototyping, engineering analysis, data analysis, fabrication, product transition and modifications, calibrations, installations
