Kratos’ Phil Carrai: Ground Systems Becoming Key Differentiator in Satellite Telecoms Industry

Phil Carrai

TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 14, 2018 — Phil Carrai, president of the Kratos Defense and Security Solutions (Nasdaq: KTOS) technology and training solutions division, has highlighted the growing importance of ground systems amid recent trends in the increasingly competitive satellite telecommunications industry, ExecutiveBiz reported Tuesday.

Via Satellite reported Jan. 7 that Carrai and other leaders in the sector discussed during the 2018 Kratos Global Users Conference about the need to adapt to new developments, including the declining price of bandwidth and the commoditization of satellite hardware, as well as implement changes such as the automation of satellite operations and network management.

“If you have that much capacity and the satellites are reconfigurable then the real activity must be in the network; if you’re going to differentiate versus the competition, it’s got to be on the ground side,” Carrai said.
