SAN DIEGO - Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that it has received $3 million in contract awards for design and build of two Ku-Band earth stations for a certain customer.
Kratos will deliver two Ku-band earth station solutions that include Kratos’ high-performance 5.0 meter and 6.2 meter Ku-band limited motion antenna systems and a Compass® monitoring and control system. Kratos’ antenna solutions meet strict customer requirements and are optimized to reduce complexity and risk. This protects and maximizes operator infrastructure investment by delivering faster time-to-market, faster time-to-revenue and reduced costs. Compass® provides complete monitor and control of devices for satellite and hybrid networks to ensure the health and uptime of mission critical equipment.
The Kratos’ earth station solutions will be pre-configured at Kratos’ controlled, off-site facility and deployed at the customer’s location to provide higher quality and accelerated market entry. Kratos’ satellite and space products and systems support approximately 85 percent of U.S. space missions and approximately 75 percent of the world’s commercial space system operators, respectively.
“Satellite operators, both National Security related and commercial, are facing a changing market dynamic with the introduction of new services and the resulting impact on bandwidth capacity and pricing. These dynamics reinforce the need for operators to deploy modern, state-of-the-art earth station solutions that are optimized to reduce costs and increase performance,” said James Kramer, Kratos Senior Vice President.
Due to customer-related, competitive and other considerations, no additional information is being provided relative to these competitive contract awards.
