Growth Continues for Kratos OpenSpace quantum and SpectralNet Products in Q3 Supporting Digital Transformation of Satellite Ground Systems
Strong Adoption in Support of Government, Defense and Intelligence Applications Continues Momentum
Nov. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that it closed sales of its OpenSpace™ quantum™ and OpenSpace SpectralNet® products to 23 customers, supporting the satellite industry’s continued movement toward dynamic, virtualized ground systems.
Kratos’ OpenSpace family of solutions help satellite operators move their network systems from traditional hardware to more dynamic, flexible and scalable architectures that are more responsive to service level agreements, mission goals and changing operating conditions.
Sales of quantum and SpectralNet products to commercial operators remained strong in Q3, and were particularly strong to customers supporting
U.S. defense and intelligence programs as well as government projects for other nations.
Blue Canyon Technologies, a leading manufacturer of small satellites and provider of mission services based in
Lafayette, Colorado, has been using quantum products in support of more than a dozen of its defense and commercial customers for some time, purchasing additional units this quarter to support its customers. “OpenSpace quantum products provide scale and economic advantages,” said
Stephen Steg, CEO of Blue Canyon Technologies. “We can install and configure them quickly and reconfigure rapidly when changes are needed to support multiple missions.”
Kratos’ OpenSpace family of solutions includes three product lines: OpenSpace SpectralNet® for digital IF conversion; OpenSpace quantum™ for replacing individual hardware components with virtualized equivalents; and the OpenSpace Platform for fully dynamic, service-oriented, orchestrated satellite ground network operations. The OpenSpace family enables customers the flexibility to realize their path to digital transformation at the level and pace that meets their unique mission goals and business models.
