Kratos Awarded $2.6 Million Contract to Develop Proof of Concept System Enabling Satellite Communication Roaming Capability
Kratos’ system will enable government satellite users to roam, similar to the way cell phone users roam through multiple cellular networks. This will be demonstrated with a Flexible Modem Interface (FMI) that enables secure communication across multiple operator networks, in multiple frequency bands, utilizing diverse waveforms and modems. It will show implementation of critical command and control (C2) capabilities allowing an existing U.S. government terminal to switch to different satellites if the main satellite is compromised, enhancing resiliency through path diversity and enabling global service connectivity to multiple available networks.
Under the terms of the award, Kratos will also demonstrate a prototype government network operating center (GNOC) function that responds to user requirements and service provider capabilities. The function interfaces to
Kratos is supported on this effort by a world-class team of satellite operators to execute the program, including Intelsat General, SES Government Solutions, and
The program is sponsored by the Space and Missile Systems Center,
“The commercial product solution illustrates how minor modifications to existing government terminals can create the ability to seamlessly leverage multiple commercial
