Kratos Integral Systems Europe selected by AsiaSat for upgrade

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions announced that its Integral Systems Europe Limited, ISE, subsidiary has been awarded a contract by Asia Satellite Telecommunications Co. Ltd. (AsiaSat) to upgrade another satellite terminal at its Tai Po Earth Station in Hong Kong SAR. Under the terms of the contract, ISE will upgrade one of Tai Po's C-band Radio Frequency (RF) uplink systems. Factory integration for the new system will begin shortly at ISE's ground systems integration facility near Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. When the installation at Tai Po is completed later this year, the new system will expand AsiaSat's transmission capacity and provide more flexible transponder access across its satellite fleet.
