To detect, characterize, and geolocate the source of satellite uplink communication signals
Integral Systems, a provider of satellite communication systems, has purchased the intellectual property and other assets relating to the satID product line from UK-based QinetiQ Group.
According to Integral Systems, satellite operators use satID to geolocate the source of satellite interferers, jammers, and unauthorized users to ensure quality of satellite service. The satID product line and services will become a part of Integral Systems’ Space Communications group. Technology consultancy and other support services relating to the satID product line will be provided to Integral Systems by QinetiQ in the UK.
In a separate agreement, Integral Systems and QinetiQ North America have agreed to pursue teaming arrangements on certain existing programs and jointly explore future programs for the national security marketplace.
Integral Systems has said that the satID product will be integrated with its Telemetrix, Compass, and Monics products to provide a fully integrated capability to detect, characterize, and geolocate the source of satellite uplink communication signals with applications in commercial, military, government, and intelligence markets.
John Higginbotham, CEO of Integral Systems, said: We are excited to bring this capability in-house to enhance our space situational awareness product and system offerings for our customers. We are pleased to have on-going access to the excellent engineering skills of QinetiQ in the UK and we are delighted to pursue a working relationship with QinetiQ North America for key defense and intelligence community customers.
