February 28, 2020
SAN DIEGO, Calif. Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc., a national security solutions provider, announced that it was awarded an $11.5 million contract to build an advanced space radio monitoring system for a government customer. The system will incorporate Kratos technologies and integrated products to help the country regulate and protect the satellite spectrum.
As part of the multi-million dollar project, Kratos is responsible for the turnkey design, installation, and integration of the advanced space radio monitoring system including the core satellite technology and associated hardware and software.
The system includes a fixed site and mobile unit to monitor satellite downlinks. The scope of work includes Kratos antennas, a satellite monitoring and geolocation solution, and an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) spectrum analysis solution.
Kratos will deploy GeoMon, a specific application for frequency regulators to implement ITU missions, as well as the Monics carrier monitoring, satID geolocation, Compass network Monitor & Control (M&C), and Skyminer ground system data analytics products integrated with the Kratos-designed antennas/RF systems.
Skyminer is intended to enable the operators to collect performance data across ground systems and use business intelligence to analyze satellite measurements from both regulatory and technical perspectives.
