Mako capabilities demonstrated included manned/unmanned collaborative operations and the latest mission payload set capability to introduce the operational utility of the Mako into a larger scale exercise.

Steve Fendley, Kratos Unmanned Systems Division President, said, “We first flew the UTAP-22 Mako UAS at the end of 2015 in a series of successful flights, demonstrating the performance characteristics and capabilities of this high performance tactical unmanned aerial system.
