- Fun Fact: In June 2019, Kratos received the honor of Best in Show for a booth over 36 square meters displayed in the U.S. Pavilion at the 53rd International Paris Air Show at Le Bourget. The Booth’s ability for show-goers to interact with Kratos’ solutions was a key distinguisher for the recognition, chosen by an unaffiliated panel of judges.
Kratos’ Booth exhibited the company’s newest technologies, showcasing the Kratos family of high performance jet Unmanned Drones and the latest Mixed Reality Training Platform. The Kratos Mixed Reality Platform, featuring interactive hands-on demonstrations, integrates technology advancements in gaming and simulation to achieve fully immersive Mixed Reality warfighter training solutions that provide the means to train in complex, multi-domain environments while reducing costs, speeding development, and delivering high-fidelity performance.
- Volunteer Events: In June 2019, KUAS participated in California Capital Airshow’s ‘Positive Altitude’ event where hundreds of young people from all over the region were given an opportunity to explore colorful airplanes, helicopters, police and fire vehicles, and more. KUAS set-up an interactive booth where children could create pre-designed paper airplanes and test flight each design to see differences in flight.
In April 2019, KUAS hosted a booth at ACE Career Expo Day 2019 at the Sacramento Aerospace Museum. The Career Expo helped open doors to STEM and Aviation education and careers for hundreds of young people who attended.
KUAS believes that exposure to such unique and interactive experiences can expand a young person’s imagination and broaden their outlook on life, and will inspire kids to strive for a better life and achieve the greatness that they possess.
