At full rate production, we believe the SSAT will be the largest single program for the company (assuming no near-term surge for the Valkyrie or the Gremlins) and supports our thesis that the legacy target drone business will grow from ~$150M in 2018 to almost $250M in 2020-2021. We believe that the SSAT and AFSAT programs are accretive to the Unmanned Systems segment operating profit and will contribute to the positive FCF inflection."
