Our team designs and delivers innovative solutions combining our market leading COTS products, best-of-breed industry tools, custom developed modular software, and top notch engineering services to address the specific needs of our partners, across any platform and technology necessary to meet customer’s needs. Kratos has had the opportunity to work with many defense, intelligence, and government organizations such as the Air Force, Army, Navy, NASA, NOAA and many others through our integrated solutions.
With a long history of successful execution of commercial, military, civil and Intelligence Community satellite ground segment programs the Kratos family of solutions providers has the technical and management expertise to provide solutions in an affordable, timely, and thorough manner. Kratos has integrated more satellite ground systems than any other provider in the world. Some of which include the multi-mission Command and Control System – Consolidated (CCS-C) Program, which flies all of the Air Force’s Milsatcom Satellites (DSCS, Milstar, WGS, and AEHF) at Schriever AFB. Our commitment has led to the success of the DMSP IPACS ground system, TIROS PACS ground system, GOES N-Q ground system, as well as a key role on the Honeywell AFSCN SCNC Team and many other programs around the globe.
Our dedication to customer service has solidified long-term relationships with Kratos products and services used by more than 75 percent of the world’s satellite operators and 85 percent of U.S.-based space missions.
The EPOCH Integrated Product Suite (IPS) Fleet Management solution enables a more efficient and economical alternative to costly command and monitoring practices. EPOCH IPS is an all-in-one orbital command and control system that can be operated from a user’s desktop to provide dynamic and comprehensive Operational and Space Situational Awareness.
Satellite ground networks are migrating to lower-cost, interoperable IP-based technologies. The benefits in cost, performance and interoperability are tremendous, however these newer systems also bring with them additional cyber security risks. As the trend toward end-to-end IP increases, so does the attack surface, placing mission operations and sensitive data at increased risk of cyber compromise.
CyberC4 is an integrated family of products designed for the unique cyber defense needs of satellite environments including situational awareness, insider and external threat protection, system hardening and active defenses for total protection from cyber attacks.
