[Satellite TODAY 08-08-12] Kratos Defense & Security Solutions
subsidiary SAT Corp.
has opened new facilities in Maryland and Hawaii in an effort to expand its Interference Detection and Geolocation (iDetGeo) service coverage, Kratos announced Aug. 7.
SAT Corp.’s new facilities aim to provide signal monitoring, interference detection, characterization and geolocation service coverage on 1,127 beams from 269 commercial communications satellites.
The company said the new facilities also further its “split site” geolocation capability, which aims to allow for data acquisition at two geographically separated antenna sites. “Split site technology supports multi-beam geolocation and enables SAT to increase the number of instances where a geolocation result can be completed,” the company said in a statement.
The new facilities join SAT Corp.’s six operating sites based in the United States, the United Kingdom, Cypress, India, Singapore and South Korea.
