Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. has acquired VeriSat Solutions AS and SatGuard AS, both privately held technology companies based outside of Oslo, Norway. Kratos will combine the two companies to form a subsidiary named Kratos Norway, and the 8 person team will become a new Center of Excellence in VSAT Management Technologies, complementing Kratos’ current European centers in Toulouse, France and Tyne & Wear, United Kingdom. Mr. Amundsen, CEO and Founder of VeriSat Solutions and SatGuard will join Kratos as General Manager of Kratos Norway.
According to Phil Carrai, President of Kratos’ Technology & Training Division, “These technologies are unique in the market and will help organizations find and mitigate interference much faster and effectively. In the case of one major operator, for example, they were used to resolve in just 10 minutes a revenue loss problem that had been plaguing the company for more than six months. They align perfectly with our market-leading solutions that monitor, manage and assure satellite communications, including Monics, the world’s most-used Carrier Management System, and satID, the most accurate interference geolocation software.”
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our team and our technology to develop further,” stated Petter Amundsen, CEO and Founder of VeriSat Solutions and SatGuard. “Combining our expertise in VSAT and TDMA technology with some of the industry’s leading engineers working on the challenge of interference mitigation at Kratos will enable us to bring a whole new generation of integrated solutions to enhance the power of satellite communications.”
