Kratos' SAT Awarded Multi-Million Dollar Contract For Satellite Interference Monitoring And Geolocation System Enhancements

Monics® and satID® Products Combine to Create the Most Comprehensive RF Interference Detection and Geolocation Solution in the Industry

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that its SAT Corporation (SAT) subsidiary has received a multi-million dollar order from SES S.A. (SES) to upgrade hardware for five satID® geolocation systems currently in use around the world. satID is SAT's industry leading RF interference geolocation product that provides an accurate, fast, all-in-one solution for locating and identifying sources of interference due to equipment failure, operator error, intentional jamming, or unauthorized users.

In addition to the system upgrades, SAT will provide software maintenance, software upgrades and technical support for both satID and SAT's Monics® over the next five years. Monics is SAT's enterprise networked carrier monitoring system used by the largest satellite operators and telecommunications providers in the world. Monics combines hardware and software components to provide monitoring for satellite uplink and downlink performance to enable operators to provide the best signal possible.

With the new upgrades, SAT will significantly expand SES's geolocation capacity. These new upgrades will also support additional frequency bands for the host systems to increase capability by adding geolocation for signals from L, S, X and Ka band frequencies.

"SES is pleased to extend the support contract with SAT for Monics and satID systems," said Chris Grogan, SES SVP Customer Service Delivery. "The upgrades and support services that SAT will provide will allow SES to enhance its monitoring and geolocation systems for continued provision of advanced Quality of Service monitoring and operational support to SES customers."

"With the growth of traffic over L, S, X and Ka band frequencies, RF interference is increasing for all satellite operators," said Dan Ojennes, satID Product Manager. "RF interference is cutting into performance and service levels and can lead to interruptions, failure to deliver content, and even long-term outages that can cause service providers to lose revenue. satID and Monics will provide SES with the ability to reduce these risks on all frequency bands and minimize the impact of interference to its customers."
