      Kratos Defense & Security Solutions announced that The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) of the Sultanate of Oman has formally accepted Kratos’ Advanced Space Radio Monitoring System (ASRMS). The multi-million-dollar project started in late 2014 and includes 10 years of long-term support services for the ASRMS system.

      ASRMS is a satellite monitoring and geolocation solution developed to help satellite frequency regulators identify authorized and unauthorized satellite communication signals, manage the satellite spectrum used in their respective countries, and help improve cooperation with other telecommunications regulatory agencies.

      Working with TRA, Kratos was responsible for virtually every aspect of the system including the core satellite technology and associated hardware and software, according to the company. ASRMS includes several Kratos antennas covering Ultra High Frequency (UHF), L-, C-, X-, Ku-, Ka-bands, a mobile vehicle providing analysis capabilities for both Earth-to-space and space-to-Earth signals and an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) spectrum analyzing solution. Additionally, Kratos managed the build-out of the civil works (housing, road access, power, water, etc.) needed to support the system.

      According to Kratos, ASRMS eases regulator management of the satellite Radio Frequency (RF) spectrum over their countries including known and unknown transmissions.
