Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that its SAT Corporation subsidiary has been awarded a contract by the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) to provide worldwide Radio Frequency (RF) interference geolocation services. The award is valued at $13.2 million if all options are exercised.
Under the terms of the contract, SAT will provide U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) with SAT’s QoS RF Monitoring and Interference Detection and Geolocation Services for monitoring and geolocating commercial satellite interference. USCYBERCOM is a sub-unified command, subordinate to USSTRATCOM, that is responsible for planning, coordinating, integrating, synchronizing, and directing activities to operate and defend the Department of Defense information networks. The contract represents a multi-million dollar value if all options are exercised over five years.
„We are pleased that USSTRATCOM and USCYBERCOM will continue to rely upon the advanced technical capabilities of our global network,” said Greg Caicedo, Vice President and General Manager of SAT Services. „Worldwide geolocation capabilities are an essential piece for USSTRATCOM and USCYBERCOM defense missions, including enhanced protection of critical leased commercial SATCOM assets. SAT Services provide these capabilities in a uniquely cost-effective services-based model.”
SAT Services will provide USCYBERCOM’s Global SATCOM Support Center (GSSC), located at Peterson AFB, Colorado, with actionable information via SAT’s global network of eight commercial Interference Detection and Geolocation sites. SAT’s global network employs SAT’s industry-leading commercial products, including Monics® for interference monitoring; satID® for geolocation; as well as Tri-band (C-, X- and Ku-band) antennas to quickly and accurately identify, characterize and geolocate sources of unintentional or deliberate interference affecting leased commercial communication satellites.
