Krato Defense & Security Solutions has become a founding member of a sector-specific membership organization that aims to help the federal government gather, analyze and distribute information about potential threats to space-based assets.
The company said Monday it provided initial funds, coordinated organizational planning and developed a plan for the operation of the Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center.
"Protecting space assets is becoming an increasing challenge, both from cybersecurity threats and from the increasing challenges in the [radio frequency] domain in the form of jamming, unintentional interference, space situational awareness and other growing threats," said Phil Carrai, president of Kratos' technology and training solutions division.
Carrai added he believes government and industry can counter the threats by sharing data.
Kratos plans to invite other companies to join Space ISAC. Establishment of the new center was announced Monday at the 35th Space Symposium in Colorado.
