Cancel Signal Interference in Real-Time

with Sig-X Protect

From the Industry Leader in RF Interference


Key Features
Mitigation, Now Detect, Monitor ... and Resolve! Frequency Coverage
Traditional approaches to dealing with (RFI) mitigation strategies have been mostly IF option (70 MHz)
limited to monitoring, detecting and geolocating interference. Actually resolving UHF option (240-320 MHz)
L Band (950-2150 MHz)
it, however, if possible at all, has required the assistance of the interferer: if known

impact on operations and preserves current infrastructure investments.
SigX Protect employs a technique called blind separation on the receive
side of the communications, without the need for similar equipment on
the transmit side, which many existing solutions require. As a result, SigX
SigX Protect Device
Protect works not just on point-to-point networks, but point-to-multi-
point and cross-beam applications as well, providing a far more expansive and cost effective solution set.

SigX Protect works with all existing and new satellites. It provides the highest level of automatic interference protection for
high priority carriers and works for most types and causes of interference, including unmodulated (CW and sweeping CW)
signals.

Kratos approach to signal cancellation provides a level of automatic interference protection to high priority carriers, both multiple unmodulated CW and Swept CW in
Version 1.0 and requires receive site equipment only.

For service providers, satellite operators, teleport operators and high availability services alike, the ability of SigX Protect to
quickly cancel interference in real-time will help assure QoS, interference-free communications and time-sensitive delivery of
critical communications; while continuing to leverage investments in existing infrastructure.

From the Leader in RFI Management


SAT, a Kratos Company, is recognized as having the most comprehensive RF interference (RFI) mitigation products on the
market.

Joining the industry-leading carrier monitoring product, Monics and the most accurate geolocation product, satID, is SigX
Protect, which automatically cancels out unwanted interference from the communication pathway.
