Kratos ISI to Provide Turnkey Ground Segment Solution for Indonesia's PT

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security
Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider,
announced today that its Kratos Integral Systems International (Kratos ISI)
business unit has been awarded a contract by PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia, Tbk.
(Telkom) to deliver an integrated system for Telkom's Backup Satellite Control
Station. The system will provide simultaneous telemetry, tracking and command
for two of Telkom's satellites, along with the capability to expand to support
future Telkom satellites.

Telkom selected Kratos ISI's industry-leading EPOCH^TM Integrated Product
Suite (IPS) Fleet Management System to support Telkom's satellite fleet. EPOCH
IPS is a hardware-independent, database-driven, open architecture satellite
fleet management system capable of controlling an array of satellites with a
minimal number of personnel. Because EPOCH can support multiple satellites
simultaneously from a single ground system, it will help maximize Telkom's
investment by providing an upgrade path to operate any combination of
satellite platforms and ground assets in the future.

Kratos ISI will provide the backup satellite Command and Control system along
with the antenna to support the two Telkom satellites, Telkom-1 and Telkom-2.
Telkom-1 is a Lockheed Martin A2100 satellite and Telkom-2 is an Orbital
STAR-2 satellite. The system will use two existing five meter C-band antennas,
and Kratos ISI will add a new nine meter C-band antenna as part of this

"We are extremely pleased to welcome Telkom as a new EPOCH IPS customer," said
James Kramer, Senior Vice President of Kratos ISI."Kratos has experience
fielding end-to-end ground systems in Indonesia and other Asian markets, and
EPOCH IPS has proven capabilities in operating satellites of the same design
as the two Telkom satellites."

for Telkom to use open system technology for all operational TELKOM
satellites," said Irwan Mahry GM Satellite of Telkom.
