SAT Corp., a subsidiary of Kratos Defense and Security Solutions, will provide its carrier monitoring and interference detection system to Inmarsat for a satellite network scheduled to offer full global coverage by the end of 2014.
Monics is designed as a enterprise-networked DSP spectrum measurement and interference analysis system that works to monitor satellite uplink and downlink performance, Kratos said Tuesday.
Satellite operators and telecommunications providers in more than 57 countries worldwide use Monics.
