SAN DIEGO, May 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:KTOS) today announced that it will be showing a mix of new and enhanced ground system products to help commercial and government satellite and teleport operators capitalize upon the advantages of virtual and cloud-based architectures to help lower costs, increase efficiencies and increase flexibility in service offerings.
Cloud-based environments and virtual solutions—those that replace hardware with software implementations—have revolutionized information and communications technologies across all industries. The satellite world has been a bit slower to fully adopt them, however, not for lack of interest, but because of the unique technical difficulties associated with converting and working with RF analog signals within a digital, IP environment.
In addition to its full line of ground segment products, at Satellite 2019 Kratos will feature solutions that help satellite and teleport operators advance their cloud and virtual operations strategies including:
- SpectralNet and Data Defender, two Digital IF products that work together to provide a trusted onramp to the cloud for satellite data. SpectralNet provides reliable digitization and transport of RF signals; Data Defender assures reliable transmission over impaired network links and overcome the challenges that packet-based TCP/IP sometimes brings to real-time RF streams.
- quantumRadio, a high performance, scalable software modem for TT&C and data applications that is ready for cloud implementations.
- The Kratos Management Platform (KMP), an integrated system that will allow multi-domain management across network equipment, RF signals and VSAT equipment. Network Management is the first module of KMP being shown at Satellite 2019.
As one of the very few companies offering commercial products across the gamut of satellite ground segment needs—from analog signal management, to digital signal processing all the way through signal assurance, terrestrial network operations and satellite command and control—Kratos is helping satellite customers get ready for what’s next in cloud-enabled satellite operations.
