Kratos Defense & Security Solutions said last week its unmanned systems division is opening new offices and production facilities in Oklahoma City "to accommodate expected increased demand."

"Kratos will continue target drone production from its existing Sacramento[,CA,] facility, with a significant production ramp-up having already begun at that facility, and expected to increase even more over the next 24 months," the company said. "Oklahoma will be the site for new tactical drone production and excess demand requirements related to target drone production."

The company is initially occupying an 8,800-square-foot facility in Oklahoma City, Kratos said. Within six months, it expects to expand into a 75,000-square-foot facility.

Kratos said it anticipates employing more than 350 in Oklahoma "within the next few years."
