SAN DIEGO, Feb. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (Cyta), a major international telecommunications hub in the Eastern Mediterranean, has selected Kratos’ End-to-End Network Management Suite of products to support its expanding satellite ground operations. The network management suite will help Cyta scale its international operations by automating network functions and managing customer services and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) more effectively across hybrid satellite and terrestrial networks. The suite will be deployed at the company’s Makarios Teleport Station. The Makarios Teleport hosts a large number of earth stations providing links to numerous satellites included in Cyta’s extensive telecommunications network that delivers a wide range of international telecommunications products, services and solutions. The network management upgrade is a key element of Cyta’s enhancement program, which includes adding advanced services to support satellite operators in satellite control and monitoring operations. As Bruno Dupas, President of Kratos Integral Systems Europe, explains: “Optimization of network performance and service delivery were two of Cyta’s key objectives. The End-to-End Network Management suite configured for Cyta includes Compass® to proactively monitor and manage Cyta’s network devices to reduce costly downtime, and, in the event of a device failure, reduce Mean-Time-to-Repair (MTTR) by identifying the root cause of device issues earlier and accelerating the remediation process. In addition, Kratos’ NeuralStar® SQM organizes and manages Cyta’s services across its international network and helps improve service quality assurance. By bridging the management silos, NeuralStarSQM retrieves both device and service data from monitored systems at the Makarios Teleport and integrates it all into a common platform enabling Cyta to identify, prioritize and recover services quickly and improve service level delivery and maximize SLAs.” Makarios Teleport’s operations are already supported by Kratos’ Monics® integrated RF Monitoring System, which is connected to more than 60 satellite antennas and provides direct visibility to the satellite carriers transmitted and received at the site. Detailed information on the relevant parameters, such as modulation details of wanted and interfering carriers can be readily extracted. Together, Compass, NeuralStarSQM, and Monics provide an end to end solution ensuring that Teleport personnel are continuously aware of the status of every device and service Cyta provides and can promptly take the necessary measures to address any situation effectively. According to Costas Agrotis, Manager of the Cyprus Teleports, “Makarios Teleport along with the other two supplementary teleports continue to expand steadily and new equipment and infrastructure is regularly integrated to the existing facilities. Our new Network Management System will help us reduce costs and increase Quality of Service (QoS) by automating manual tasks and expediting recovery from network anomalies. It is a key component of our infrastructure enhancement as well as our continued growth.” About Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc.

Cyta is capitalizing on the geographical location of Cyprus in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea to expand its telecommunications hub. Cyta operates 3 Teleports in Cyprus providing diversity and disaster recovery. Makarios Teleport along with the other two teleports offer full visibility of the geostationary arc, covering any satellite location between 35W and 105E and are optimum for satellite communications. Makarios Teleport is currently through the process of being certified by World Teleport Association (WTA). Cyta is a long-term industry partner and has a solid reliability record for the provision of satellite services for more than 35 years. The climate in Cyprus, with extensive sunshine, low rainfall and no need for de-icing is ideal for satellite operations. These favorable conditions make it possible to provide satellite links with enhanced availability.

Aerospace engineers used Satellite Tool Kit (STK) Simulation Software from Analytical Graphics Inc. (AGI) to visualize and model the Cassini-Hugyen spacecraft mission's condition. Once a mock-up of the mission's circumstances was modeled and understood, the data output by STK was coupled to a new class of test instrument called a channel simulator. Carrier Doppler was well recognized and accounted for by the Cassini-Huygens communications system's designers. With the new mission plan, the relative velocity between the two craft was constrained to approximately half that of the original planned mission. Instead of an angle of near zero degrees between the velocity vector and the communications link, the angle was kept within 25 degrees of 90 degrees. The STK simulation feeds data in real time to the channel simulator which, in turn, recreates physically accurate perturbations experienced by the Cassini-Huygens communications link.

A method of locating the source of an unknown signal. The method comprises the steps of:(i) calculating a differential offset for a signal for each of a plurality of positions within a region in which the transmitter must lie, for each of a series of times m with respect to first and second signal relays and respective first and second receivers, the positions of the signal relays and receivers being known; (ii) generating a cross-ambiguity function (CAF) using data corresponding to samples of the unknown signal received at the first and second receivers via the first and second signal relays respectively,(iii) estimating the level of noise on the CAF; and(iv) using data generated in steps (i), (ii) and (iii) to obtain a measure of the likelihood that the source is located within defined areas within said region, wherein the differential offsets are differential time offsets (DTOs), or differential frequency offsets (DFOs), or both DTOs and DFOs. The method further comprises the steps of (v) for each of a series of times sampling the unknown signal at first and second receivers via first and second signal relays respectively; (vi) generating a corresponding series of CAF surfaces; (vii) for a given latitude and longitude , computing differential time and frequency offsets at each time , finding the associated CAF surface value at each time , and corresponding values of signal-to-noise ratio; and (viii) evaluating the chi-squared value
