There are many situations where earth station system performance can be adversely affected by RF interference (RFI).
Kratos’ site design team undertakes numerous site surveys, including measurement of the RF spectrum, to advise customers of potential issues and on the optimal layout in the provision of earth stations. Our team is well versed in communication link performance analysis, using in-depth design tools to ensure system design is sized correctly. Using standard techniques and in-house software our staff ensures your system architecture is planned to the last detail, from baseband to antenna installation and everything in between.
Where a look angle is questionable, or space is tight, our design team takes the uncertainty out of antenna positioning and installation using customized 3D beam analysis. Finally, our testing capabilities, ranging from software through to the RF Systems, are the final step of quality assurance.
Well-engineered earth stations are built to last, but equipment does eventually reach the end of its useful or economic life. When that time comes, Kratos ensures that de-commissioning is done in a safe, controlled, low-risk manner.
