U.S Air Force Silent Sentry: Protecting Space Communications

More than 20,000 [miles] above the Earth’s surface, communication satellites orbit the planet, listening for a signal. Once they receive a signal, they repeat it and send it back down to the surface. The U.S. Air Force uses many types of satellite communications to transmit data all around the globe. With the encryption of data, the U.S. Air Force denies prying eyes the ability to read critical information. However, desperate enemies often try a number of subterfuge methods to disrupt SATCOM. This is where the 379th Expeditionary Operations Support Squadron’s Silent Sentry (OSY) flight comes into play – to protect critical satellite communication links by employing multiple weapons systems for electronic warfare.

INTEGRASYS introduces Alusat, powerful remote maintenance product for VT iDirect customers

Automated tool that enhances VSAT virtual network maintenance, maximizing performance and reducing operational expenditure   Herndon, Va. March 21, 2018 – VT iDirect, Inc. (iDirect), a company of Vision Technologies Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced that INTEGRASYS, a development, engineering and integration company specializing in the telecommunication and broadcasting markets, has launched its award-winning Always Up Satellite Terminal (Alusat) product, an automated very-small-aperture terminal (VSAT) tool that helps to enhance virtual network maintenance after installation. Alusat, which won “Teleport Technology of the Year” from the World Teleport Association (WTA) during Satellite 2018,  allows service providers to monitor sites, ensuring that VSAT terminals continue to operate efficiently after installation, and identify those not functioning properly. This enables service providers to optimize their operation and respond to malfunctions more efficiently, bringing about time and cost savings in operational expenditure. Satmotion Pocket enables satellite service providers to easily install and commission a VSAT terminal with great accuracy. The addition of Alusat allows for the monitoring of all sites to ensure that they continue to operate at maximum efficiency after installation. Alusat enables the virtual revalidation and calibration of the overall network through a combination of system management and spectrum monitoring and measurement, to accurately derive the remote terminal RF status. Using this process, a service provider can pinpoint which terminals are not functioning properly and in some cases even recover terminals that may be out of service. This can save time and money if a service provider can avoid revisiting a site, or help recover from serious events like a natural disaster or atmospheric interruption. Both Satmotion Pocket and Alusat can share the same hardware, keeping costs down for new customers or further enhancing the capabilities for existing Satmotion Pocket customers with minimal investment. Alusat also communicates directly with the iDirect Network Management System bringing further automation and insight into your network performance and helping to reduce operational expenses. “For any satellite network, it’s critical to ensure all sites are running at optimal performance. Our solutions can help service providers monitor local terminals to improve the end user experience and save operational costs,” said Juan C. Sanchez, CEO, INTEGRASYS. “We are excited to bring our latest solution to iDirect’s customers with the introduction of Alusat.” “We have seen fantastic adoption of the INTEGRASYS Satmotion Pocket helping customers speed up their VSAT deployments and saving on operational costs,” said Cynthia Harty, Vice President of Business Development, VT iDirect. “Now, with Alusat’s ability to monitor the overall health of the network and complete integration with the iDirect system, our customers gain even more cost savings.” For a video demo of Alusat, visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwTsbbnXDVg&feature=youtu.be -ENDS- INTEGRASYS is a privately owned company specialized on engineering...

Integrasys is the Award Winner of the Most Innovative Technology at World Teleport Association Satellite Show 2018

Alusat is an evolution of Integrasys’ industry-leading Satmotion Pocket technology which allows accurate installation during remote commissioning. Alusat allows the consistent monitoring of a VSAT site after installation to ensure optimisation of operation and the minimisation of costs caused by service failures and site re-visits. Alusat allows a virtual visit to every site on the network. The operator is able to determine the different thresholds for Rx and Tx and the actions to be taken automatically by the system in different circumstances to rectify problems. Alusat checks all of the terminals in the targeted VSAT community, analysing the Rx and Tx measured values of copol power, cross-pol isolation, adjacent satellite interference and 1dB compression point to detect failures and raise any necessary alarms. Alvaro Sanchez Sales Director at Integrasys: “For us it is a great pleasure support our customers innovating every year to solve their challenge, we see how our slogan Building Success from Innovation is taking shape our company, increasing the success, the turn over, personnel and excitement. We are extremely glad to be in this path thanks to our great team, of...
