A specialized National Security technology company that provides mission critical products, solutions and services for the US, Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc., has announced they will feature new ground system capabilities to help operators respond to a changing satellite environment at Satellite 2017, March 6-9, in Washington DC.
Among the solutions to be featured in Kratos' booth #1901 are:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
