Kratos selected the RascomStar teleport in Douala, Cameroon to install a monitoring station for the newly launched Azerspace-2 satellite – Azerbaijan’s second telecommunications satellite. This station includes 3 antennas developed by Kratos – one that is 7.5m one that is 4.5m and one that is 3.7m in size. To monitor its C and Ku African beams in real-time, the advanced control station takes advantage of Kratos’ Monics Carrier Monitoring System (CSM), the satID geolocation solution to perform geolocations, and Compass – a Monitor and Control (M&C) product to centralize management of the equipment across the station…
As a result of a strong collaboration between Kratos and RascomStar, the installation of all the antennas and systems was completed on December 2018. With these advanced systems the Douala Teleport is now providing 7x24h support and maintenance.
