Kratos' SAT Awarded Multi-Million Dollar Contract From Large Satellite
Operator for Satellite Interference Monitoring

SAN DIEGO, March 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security
Solutions, Inc.(Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider,
announced today that its SAT Corporation (SAT) subsidiary has received a
multi-million dollar order to provide satellite interference detection and
quality of service monitoring. The contract, awarded by one of the industry's
largest companies, includes SAT's satellite monitoring product, Monics^®.

Monics is an enterprise networked advanced spectrum measurement and
interference analysis system used by the majority of satellite operators and
telecommunications providers around the world. As a complete carrier
monitoring system, Monics also provides advanced interference detection and
analysis capabilities.

The Monics implementation will combine hardware and software components to
provide monitoring for satellite uplink and downlink performance. Monics'
native scalability and flexibility enable a fully distributed, autonomous
system for monitoring payload traffic and RF interference, including
co-channel interference.

This will be the first satellite operator to implement both Monics and SAT's
new Monics Enterprise Manager (MEM).MEM will provide greatly enhanced
visibility into the customer's satellite payload performance along with
centralized control over monitoring assets.MEM adds an improved user
interface that includes custom displays for alarm and data management as well
as enhanced system administration.

Over the next three years, Monics will be installed in numerous locations
around the globe.These locations will provide worldwide payload monitoring
and interference detection to protect mission critical satellite bandwidth and
supply real-time satellite payload situational awareness.

"RF interference continues to affect service quality and revenue of satellite
operators," said Bob Potter, President of SAT."Like our many other users,
this newest SAT customer will be able to identify and mitigate these costly
events with the advanced technology behind Monics and MEM, enabling its
operators to provide the best quality of service to customers."

"Kratos has been strong commercial partners with many of the world's satellite
providers for years, and it is gratifying to see that trend continue to grow
with this very important program," said Phil Carrai, President of Kratos
Technology & Training Solutions."Approximately 35 percent of Kratos' business
for 2013 originates from sources other than U.S. Federal Government or DoD
programs, including commercial solutions used by more than 75 percent of the
world's commercial satellite owners."

Monics will be demonstrated in the Kratos booth #4024 at the Satellite 2013
exhibition, March 19-21, 2013, in Washington D.C., and at the National Space
Symposium 2013, booth # 408, April 8-11, 2013, in Colorado Springs, CO. For
