Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Inc announced that its Integral Systems Europe Limited (“ISE”) subsidiary has been selected by Measat Satellite Systems Sdn. Bhd. to deliver an RF System for integration at Measat’s Cyberjaya Teleport and Broadcast Centre near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to provide a satellite Tracking Telemetry and Command (TT&C) facility for the Africasat-1a satellite.
Under the terms of the purchase contract from Measat, ISE will build and test the system in its ground system integration facility near Newcastle upon Tyne, U.K. prior to shipping it to Malaysia.
“We are extremely excited about this contract award from Measat,” said Andrew Smith, President of ISE UK. “Much of our satellite earth station work over the past 30 years has been installed in Southeast Asia, and we are delighted that we now add Measat to our growing portfolio of satellite operator customers in the region who recognise the extra value ISE offers in its system solutions.”
“We are pleased to be working with ISE on this project,” said John Loke, vice president, network engineering & operations, Measat. “This is part of Measat’s plan to continue upgrading its teleport infrastructure to support the growth of our satellite fleet.”
