Kratos' RT Logic Introduces satID GeoSim, the Industry's First Satellite
Interference Geolocation Simulator
Precision Channel Simulators Provide Training and Test Capabilities to Improve
Geolocation Accuracy and Speed at Lower Cost
SAN DIEGO, March 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security
Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutionsprovider,
announced today that its RT Logic subsidiary has launched the newest addition
to its precision channel simulation product family, the satID® GeoSim
Geolocation Simulator, an essential tool for military and commercial SATCOM.
satID GeoSim is a first of its kind geolocation training and test system for
satellite operators to aggressively protect the performance and function of
critical SATCOM links.
satID GeoSim creates the Radio Frequency (RF) signals that occur when a
satellite encounters hostile jamming or other interference. It is seamlessly
integrated with industry-leading RF interference management products from
Kratos' SAT subsidiary, Monics® for interference monitoring and satID® for
geolocation.satID GeoSim injects real signals that represent any combination
of satellites, worldwide ground locations, RF bands and global reference
satID GeoSim enables geolocation professionals to train anywhere and anytime
without having to wait for actual interference to occur.This flexibility lets
satID GeoSim dramatically sharpen geolocation techniques and knowledge,
resulting in faster and more accurate detection, diagnosis, location and
mitigation of SATCOM link interference.
"Our dependence on military and commercial SATCOM for mission-critical
communications and data transport has never been higher," said Steve Williams,
Business Area Manager at RT Logic. "satID GeoSim is a powerful new tool for
cost effectively training operators for faster and more accurate detection,
characterization, location and removal of interference."
satID GeoSim is based on RT Logic's precision channel simulation technology.
It enables operators to easily select ground locations for transmission and
reception sites, choose satellites, enter antenna pattern information and
generate protected, interference and reference signals.satID GeoSim provides
simple setup, full motion displays, and advanced underlying hardware and
software physics engines.
satID GeoSim can also be used as a geolocation system self-test solution,
assuring constant peak performance of vital link protection systems, and as a
robust pre-mission simulator to anticipate, plan and design against
interference scenarios. satID GeoSim is part of the satID family of
interference geolocation solutions from SAT. satID is the premier all-in-one
solution for locating and identifying sources of SATCOM interference due to
equipment failure, operator error, intentional jamming or unauthorized users.
satID GeoSim and satID will be demonstrated in the Kratos booth #4024 at the
Satellite 2013 exhibition, March 19-21, 2013, in Washington D.C., and at the
National Space Symposium 2013, booth # 408, April 8-11, 2013, in Colorado
Springs, CO. For more information, please visit
