SAN DIEGO, April 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Kratos ISE, has successfully completed the Critical Design Review (CDR) for the Advanced Space Radio Monitoring System (ASRMS). The Regulatory Authority (TRA) of the Sultanate of Oman led the review with support from Kratos ISE personnel. The successful completion of the CDR is significant as it demonstrates that the maturity of the design is appropriate to proceed with full-scale fabrication, assembly, integration and testing.
The GeoMon system being supplied to the TRA will include a new building and several earth stations covering L/C/KU/X/Ka frequency bands, a mobile vehicle providing analysis capabilities for both earth-to-space and space-to-earth signals and an airborne spectrum analysing solution.
“The Kratos solution has been selected because of Kratos’ extensive experience in the arena of space radio monitoring systems," said Yousuf Al-Balushi, Vice President for Spectrum Management Affairs for TRA. "The SRMS will enable us to better manage the satellite spectrum used in the Sultanate and provide for improved cooperation with other telecommunications regulatory agencies."
“We are extremely pleased with the results of the CDR,” said Bruno Dupas, President of Kratos ISE. “Satellite spectrum is a national security asset that can be subject to unauthorized usage, interference and other threats. The GeoMon solution will allow TRA to monitor and geolocate satellite radio frequency transmissions with operations automated for LEO and GEO satellites in all bands.”
Kratos ISE offers turnkey ground segment solutions encompassing C2, RF/IF equipment, satellite and terrestrial communications signal monitoring systems, equipment and network management and payload management solutions.
