Atos launches new VSAT monitoring and geolocation system to mitigate interference as space becomes more crowded

Paris, July 12 2018

Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, launches its new satellite monitoring and geolocation system which can detect, localize and mitigate interference from the ever-increasing number of small satellite carriers and devices (Very Small Aperture Terminal – VSAT). Named Atos SkyMon ILS (Interference Localization System) VSAT, the system – formerly known as SIECAMS – is the latest innovation following Atosrecent acquisition of Siemens Convergence Creators (CVC), resulting in reinforced capabilities in the space market.

As, over the next couple of years thousands of powerful small satellites will be launched into Low Earth Orbit (LEO), detecting and localizing interference is therefore becoming more and more crucial.

Atos SkyMon ILS VSAT, a fully integrated solution to monitor, identify and geolocate interference caused by VSAT networks

SkyMon ILS VSAT provides:

  • Overview of the identified VSAT networks including all active terminals
  • Monitoring of cross-pol and adjacent satellite interference for each active terminal
  • Geographical location of VSAT terminals on a map
  • Classification of VSAT network
  • Automatic identification of TDMA carriers
  • Demodulation of TDMA carriers
  • List of terminal-IDs causing interference

Atos SkyMon is the most comprehensive range of solutions to identify and geolocate any kind of satellite interference and this latest addition enables Atos to support its clients in solving the challenges of a heavily crowded space” says Pierre Barnabe, Chief Operating Officer, Big Data & Security, at Atos.

Atos SkyMon ILS VSAT is part of a complete software suite which includes:

  • SkyMon ILS – interference localization system working with two adjacent satellites
  • SkyMon ILS ONE – the world’s first single satellite geolocation system
  • SkyMon TIS – terrestrial interference scanner to identify and localize interferences caused by terrestrial mobile communication networks
  • SkyMon CID – identification of the DVB-Carrier-ID

SkyMon ILS VSAT is ready to order now and will be delivered by the end of 2018.
