Kratos’ RT Logic Awarded U.S. Government Contract to Study Enhanced SATCOM Resiliency Concepts

SAN DIEGO, July 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (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...
