Arabsat Uses Atos’ Satellite Monitoring Solution
Arabsat is using Atos’ satellite monitoring solution to mitigate interferences in its satellite services, the satellite operator announced Thursday. Atos SkyMon carrier monitoring system (CMS), is operational at Arabsat’s ground stations throughout the Middle East and Africa, including a main site in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The system monitors all payload signals and traffic within Arabsat’s satellite fleet in order to detect interferences in real time. It performs spectral, Radio Frequency (RF) and quality of service measurements to detect interferences, unwanted signals, transmission breaches or unknown satellite carriers. Arabsat said the service helps eliminate service interruption and is a key asset for delivering reliable satellite services to its customers.
“Thanks to Atos’ radio frequency traffic monitoring system, we make sure to quickly identify all irregularities and rapidly coordinate response actions when the slightest problem occurs. This allows us to provide the highest quality of service to our customers,” said Khalid Balkheyour, Arabsat CEO and president.
