July 31, 2017 - Kratos Defense & Security Solutions,
Inc., a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced that the Arab
Satellite Communications Organization (Arabsat) has selected Compass®, Kratos'
end-to-end network management product, to support its expanding satellite fleet
ground operations. Compass network monitoring and control (M&C) will help
Arabsat scale its international operations by automating, and more effectively
managing, the network functions of its ground operations supporting its
expanding fleet. Compass will be deployed at the company's Teleports in Saudi
Arabia and Tunis. Kratos will provide Arabsat with Skyminer, its big data
storage and analytics engine, which will be used to archive all the data
collected by Compass. Skyminer will eventually archive Arabsat's Command and
Control (C2) data as well, providing Arabsat overall system awareness and
analytics capability from a single consolidated archive storage system. Arabsat
owns and operates eight state of-the-art satellites comprising the youngest
satellite fleet with coverage across the Middle East, Europe and Africa.
