On the CABSAT 2017 Show Floor... Kratos Solutions for VSAT Mitigation and HTS Needs On Display

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. will feature satellite ground system capabilities to help operators respond to a changing satellite environment at CABSAT 2017, March 21-23 at the Dubai World trade center in Dubai, UAE—the company's core capabilities are sophisticated engineering, manufacturing and system integration offerings for National Security platforms and programs.

Among the solutions to be featured in Stand # 805, Hall 8:

  • Ending VSAT Interference–VSATs bring new challenges and complexities to signal monitoring. A major challenge is that VSAT terminals operate in TDMA mode where many terminals share the same frequencies making it virtually impossible to determine which terminals are causing the interference. New technology from Kratos enables operators to scan, identify, locate and resolve VSAT generated interference in minutes.
  • Spot Beam Monitoring–Hundreds of spot beams from hundreds of HTS satellites require a new approach to beam monitoring. Monics® 200 is a fully-featured, cost-effective sensor for High Throughput Satellite (HTS) spot beam monitoring that can be cost-effectively integrated back to a central monitoring center.  
  • Optimizing Gateways–Dramatic growth in satellites and throughput are driving changes to gateway design and management. Kratos will illustrate how new approaches to ground system design, operations management and antennas can help operators reduce CapEx and OpEx.
