Space Situational Awareness

How RF Data Enhances the World of SSA

In today's contested and congested environment, a complete operational picture of space situational awareness (SSA) is increasingly important. Kratos offers commercial services that help fill in the gaps in today's resources and provide more actionable insights by monitoring, analyzing and fusing relevant data that can support better strategic decisions and improve operations.

RF Data for Space Situational Awareness

Kratos possesses a global commercial RF network to deliver RF spectral services for Space Situational Awareness. Kratos' extensible global network consists of 21 worldwide RF monitoring sites, hosting more than 80 sensors and antennas and specially tuned for high-speed, accurate RF signal collection and measurement. The global RF network is supported by Kratos' Network Operations Center (NOC), a dedicated workforce servicing government and commercial customers around-the-clock.

Advanced technologies exclusive to Kratos are integrated into all levels of this cutting-edge infrastructure, from custom algorithms employed in the sensor network, to industry-leading commercial applications used in the NOC for data monitoring, correlation and geolocation, to the specially-developed analytics that provide real meaning behind the raw data.

RF Data services from Kratos give the capability to quickly localize interference, assimilate the health of a satellite or acquire critical information about satellite movement, all without worrying about weather or time of day. Utilizing Kratos gives the power to track and respond to information from almost any frequency band without further investment in infrastructure or extra staffing.

Kratos supports both government agencies and commercial organizations with SSA data, including the Joint Force Space Component Command (JFSCC), DISA, National Space Defense Center (NSDC), Comcast, among others. With the addition of RF Data Services and Solutions from Kratos, the common operational picture of space situational awareness is more complete.
