Turksat Satellite Communication, Cable TV and Operation (Turksat) has selected Integral Systems Europe (Kratos ISE UK), a business unit of Kratos Defense and Security Solutions, to deliver a full-motion antenna system for installation at its site in Gölbaşı, Turkey.

Under the contract, Kratos ISE UK will provide a turnkey system to include the antenna tower with integrated equipment room, the RF system and a full-motion, full-performance 13 metre Ku-band antenna. Kratos ISE UK will also build and test the RF system at its ground system integration facility near Newcastle upon Tyne in the United Kingdom prior to installation, integration and final testing in Turkey.

“We are delighted that Turksat has selected us to provide this essential system to support their growing satellite fleet,” says Andrew Smith, President of Kratos ISE UK. “The provision of complex high-performance antenna systems has been at the core of our business for decades, and we appreciate the trust they have placed in us.”
