L-3 TRL Launches IsatPhone Monitoring System at ISS World MEA

As a leading provider of satellite monitoring systems to worldwide markets, UK defence supplier L-3 TRL Technology will showcase its new IsatPhone Monitoring System (ISMS) at the ISS World MEA exhibition in Dubai next month.

L-3 TRL’s new ISMS solution has been developed in response to increasing market demand for a reliable system that has the capability to monitor the IsatPhone network on both a strategic and tactical level. The IsatPhone service, provided by the Inmarsat-4 satellite (formally AceS), covers areas of the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

The ISMS solution will be a valuable addition to L-3 TRL’s advanced range of satellite monitoring systems which can already be used to monitor the Inmarsat, Thuraya and VSAT networks, providing government and defence agencies with a complete solution to passively monitor communications without network interference.

Peter McKee, CEO of L-3 TRL explains, “Each ISMS solution provides highly flexible communications monitoring, data mining and tracing software, enabling the comprehensive analysis and reporting of target activities which can help counter potential threats”.

As well as strategic ISMS systems to cover extensive geographical areas, L-3 TRL can also provide customers with portable solutions which have been designed for rapid field-deployment to monitor satellite-to-ground traffic in line-of-sight operations.
