Launch and Test Range Ground Systems

The nation’s launch and test range infrastructure is a critical asset that requires leading-edge, high performance ground system products to ensure reliability of launches and availability of test data. Kratos RT Logic receiver, recorder, network gateway, and mux/demux products connect range antennas to ground networks and back to control centers for real-time monitoring of launches or flight tests. Our simulation products enable testing of ground network infrastructure prior to flight, greatly improving test and launch confidence by reducing risk. Check out the products described below and give us a call to discuss your launch or test range applications.
