Subsidiary of Kratos Launches SAT-DSP-6000
SAT Corp, a subsidiary of Kratos, has released a new tuner, the SAT-DSP-6000, designed with increased Ka bandwidth and larger transponders – greater than 85 Megs.
Paul Isaacs, director of satellite products for SAT Corp, recently discussed the new product with me at the Satellite 2012 convention in Washington, DC. He explained that the new product can be used to augment the SAT-DSA, an entry level ground station designed to monitor 150 signal carriers. It can also add to existing Monics systems using the same hardware and merely changing the software.
The product, manufactured by RT Logic (News - Alert), is a spectrum analyzer which connects to the switch, using DSP technology to validate the carrier for various parameters. It runs an interference analysis and can cross-reference with databases. It includes background and interactive foreground monitoring.
At the same show, Kratos (News - Alert) announced its CyberC4: Alert product from its RT Logic subsidiary. The product is the first in a family of security applications that will work together to ensure security for satellite networks.
CyberC4: Alert is said to be a real-time situational awareness product, optimized for the space sector and acting as a security information manager. It has customizable alerts and pulls data from across a network, including information on traffic and netflow in order to alert users to potential problems as soon as possible.
Kratos is a company specializing in national security technology and providing products and services to the United States government and various contractors.
