Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN) Consortium, led by Indonesian satellite operator PSN, has selected San Diego-based Kratos security solutions provider, Defense & Security Solutions, Inc, to deliver a unified ground station monitoring solution to support the first Very High-Throughput Satellite (VHTS) in the region.
PSN is the first private satellite company and one of 5 satellite operators in Indonesia. It focuses on the telecommunications and satellite-based information business sector and provides various telecommunications and multimedia solutions.
PSN will deploy and operate the highest broadband satellite on behalf of Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology to bring internet access to remote parts of the Indonesian archipelago. VHTS is expected to launch in 2022 and will carry more than 150 gigabits per second over the Indonesian territory to connect thousands of schools, hospitals and public buildings.
Kratos is providing a unified management platform in the Network Operations Center (NOC) that will display trends, analytics and key performance indicators across the ground station to help reduce costs and optimize operations. Across the ground station 11 gateways and 105 spot beams will be monitored for signal quality. All the monitoring metrics will feed into an analytics engine to enable PSN to analyze performance and Service Level Agreements (SLA) trends and improve efficiencies over time.
