Kratos Subsidiary Wins SATCOM Management System Order; James Kramer Comments

Kratos - ExecutiveMosaicA Kratos Defense & Security Solutions subsidiary will provide an open architecture system to an Indonesia-based telecommunications company that seeks to manage both of its satellites at once.

PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk also chose Kratos Integral Systems International’s product suite with a goal to support future upgrades of its ground control network, Kratos said Tuesday.

The EPOCH fleet management system uses a hardware-independent database that aims to automatically manipulate and monitor more than one satellite with minimal human supervision.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Telkom as a new EPOCH IPS customer,” said James Kramer, Kratos ISI senior vice president.

“Kratos has experience fielding end-to-end ground systems in Indonesia and other Asian markets, and EPOCH IPS has proven capabilities in operating satellites of the same design as the two Telkom satellites,” Kramer added.

Irwan Mahry, a Telkom general manager, said the company wants to consolidate operational management functions by using new technology.

Telkom also aims for its backup command and control system and antennas to support satellites made by Lockheed Martin and Orbital Sciences.

Kratos ISI supports nearly 300 international satellite programs and has provided command and control systems provider to customers such as NASA, the U.S. Air Force and several state-owned companies.
