Kratos' RT Logic Awarded US Government Contract to Study Enhanced SATCOM Resiliency Concepts

  • Supports Major Government Satellite and Space Defense Initiative

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that the U.S. Government recently awarded its RT Logic subsidiary an important Wideband Communications Architecture Study (WCAS) contract to help define the next generation resilient ground architecture for the Department of Defense (DoD).

Kratos was awarded three of the study's primary tasks: 1) defining the overall ground architecture; 2) identifying flexible and efficient mechanisms to provide wideband transport including both satellite communications (SATCOM) and ground resources; and 3) determining the operations management requirements needed to facilitate system control and situational awareness.

Increasingly, DoD terminals must be able to "roam" beyond one satellite network to expand SATCOM capacity and resiliency. To achieve this capability, U.S. Government systems must be able to flexibly access commercial and government resources and traverse among a diverse pool of satellites, teleports, and managed systems. Currently, this capability is hindered by the proliferation of managed service networks using proprietary modems and waveform technologies.

Kratos is supported on this effort by a world-class team of satellite operators to execute the study, including Intelsat General, SES, INMARSAT, Hughes and OneWeb.

According to John Monahan, Senior Vice President, Kratos SATCOM products, "The program draws upon Kratos' core SATCOM and MILSATCOM capabilities that leverage our extensive portfolio of ground system products and architectural depth. The ‘roaming enterprise' approach will increase SATCOM capacity and create a more resilient architecture to anticipate and respond to future attacks."
