Kratos RT Logic has successfully demonstrated the ability of its Enterprise Management and Control (M&C) architecture to roam among heterogeneous networks and optimise wideband satellite communications (SATCOM), the company announced on 4 February.

Enterprise M&C improves the effectiveness of the US Department of Defense’s critical SATCOM infrastructure by enhancing flexibility and protecting access through path diversity, speeding resource allocation times and improving bandwidth efficiency.

The prototype Enterprise M&C system was implemented in conjunction with a multi-band US government satellite communication terminal and gateway equipment representative of current US government infrastructure. It enabled rapid, automated access to multiple satellites and satellite networks, operated by multiple service providers.

Mike Rice, vice president of Satellite Ground Systems at Kratos, said: 'This demonstration of roaming architected by Kratos is an efficient way to improve capacity, capabilities and resiliency.

'It proved that minor modifications to existing government terminals can create the ability to seamlessly cross between commercial and DoD SATCOM resources of various types. It is a straightforward way for the US government to effectively increase access for the warfighter without replacing or adding new terminals.'
