Kratos Celebrates National Work Zone Awareness Week with Launch of Colorado’s Second Autonomous Truck-Mounted Attenuator

SAN DIEGO, April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider and industry-leading provider of high-performance unmanned systems, announced today – on the first day of National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week – that a second Autonomous Truck-Mounted Attenuator (ATMA) has now been deployed in the State of Colorado in collaboration with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). 

CDOT’s second ATMA completed the Colorado Autonomous Mobility Task Force validation process, receiving approval for use in Southern Colorado Paint Striping Operations. The validation included demonstration of various key operational parameters, such as high-accuracy navigation, active safety systems, and obstacle detect/avoid, as well as a demonstration of system control features such as adjustment of vehicle-to-vehicle gap settings, preprogrammed lateral offsets, and Human Machine Interface (HMI) situational awareness.

In 2017, CDOT deployed its first ATMA, which is currently in operation just north of Denver. The driverless version of mobile crash barriers, which have been recognized by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) as an “Infrastructure Gamechanger” in the organization’s 2021 Report Card for American Infrastructure, removes the human from the most dangerous assignment in mobile highway operations and helps Colorado improve upon the goal of National Work Zone Safety Awareness Week: Drive Safe. Work Safe. Save Lives.

A photo accompanying this announcement is available at https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/8ce777a7-1fa3-4106-be90-52af21ed0796.

Maynard Factor, Vice President of Business Development, said, “Deployment of the second ATMA in Colorado is a significant milestone to the ATMA initiative and a testament to what can be accomplished as part of an Industry and State Agency collaboration with a common vision of adapting leading edge Autonomous Vehicle (AV) technology towards a solution to increase Work Zone Safety for the men and women maintaining our critical roadway infrastructure.”

In the commercial highway maintenance industry, driving a Truck Mounted Attenuator (TMA) is one of the most dangerous task assignments in the work zone. The TMA vehicle functions as a human-driven mobile crash barrier following behind slow moving highway maintenance operations shielding those workers and equipment from errant drivers entering the work zone. Workers assigned to drive the TMA are at serious risk of lifelong injury if/when their TMA is impacted by another vehicle which can range from a family sedan to an 80,000-pound plus tanker truck traveling at 60 mph or more. In the United States, there are more than 12 crash-related fatalities every week in the road work zone. By removing the human from the most dangerous assignment in mobile highway operations, Kratos’ driverless ATMA has the potential to save lives and change this deadly trend.

Kratos Unmanned Systems’ ATMAs, developed in collaboration with Royal Truck & Equipment, the nation’s largest producer of TMA vehicles, have driven more than 2,000 miles since launch in 2017, and in addition to the ongoing deployment in Colorado, Kratos ATMAs have been deployed in California, Florida, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, and Tennessee, as well as the United Kingdom.
