SAT Corporation Launches SigX Protect to Automatically Cancel Satellite RF Interference in Real Time
[Via Satellite 3-18-2015] Kratos Defense & Security Solutions announced that its SAT Corporation (SAT) subsidiary released SigX Protect, a patent-pending Radio Frequency (RF) signal protection product that can be configured to automatically cancel interference in real time with no human intervention.
SigX Protect works by automatically detecting and characterizing interfering signals by phase, amplitude and frequency. It then creates a cancelling signal to remove the interference and preserve the integrity of the protected link. SigX Protect employs a technique called blind separation that requires equipment only on the receiving end of the communications path and allows SigX Protect to characterize and cancel an interfering signal with no prior knowledge of the source or location of the interference. SigX Protect is installed directly in the communications chain to reduce any potential delay or latency in the communications signal. It works with all existing and new satellites, incurs no added bandwidth costs and provides protection with no impact on operations.
