Clearbox Systems will be back exhibiting this year at the 2013 Military Communications and Information Systems Conference (MilCIS), so come and visit us and see what we have to offer.

Key Information:

When: 12 – 14 November, 2013
Where: National Convention Centre, Canberra, Australia

What’s on the stand? 

Foresight Live Demonstration:

Foresight is satellite spectrum management software designed for use by satellite operators and satellite users. Using the Foresight demonstration visitors will be able to:

  • Plan carriers and transponder leases in the frequency and time domain;
  • View live and historic measurement data of simulated carriers, and
  • Explore Reporting and Data Management functionality.

Foresight is currently being deployed as the Network Control System Manager (NCSM) for JP2008 Phase 5A ADF UHF NCS.

Kratos Networks (formerly Newpoint Technologies) Compass Live Demonstration (including Profile Manager and Redundancy Manager):

Clearbox Systems will have a live demonstration of Compass, a powerful M&C/NMS software suite. As part of the demonstration Profile Manager and Redundancy Manager will be demonstrated.

Profile Manager is a Compass software component which allows the saving and restoring of equipment settings. Redundancy Manager extends Profile Manager’s functionality to provide automated configuration and cutover of redundant equipment under control of a Compass control system.

Compass is currently being deployed to provide Equipment Monitoring and Control for JP2008 Phase 3F and JP2008 Phase 5A.

SAT Corporation’s Monics Live Demonstration

Clearbox Systems will have a live demonstration of SAT Monics, an enterprise networked carrier monitoring system.

From a central Network Operations Centre, operators can monitor data and spectrum from an unlimited number of remote monitoring sites. Measurement data and spectral traces are stored for viewing of historical information.

ADF UHF SATCOM Satellite Network Management System

$7 million award includes new planning and operating capability for more efficient use of UHF SATCOM resources.

Clearbox Systems is pleased to announce it has been selected by ViaSat Inc. to supply its Foresight Satellite Network Management software as the Network Control System Manager (NCSM) to run the Australian Defence Force (ADF) Ultra High Frequency (UHF) Satellite Communications (SATCOM) Network Control System (NCS). The NCS is being delivered to support the recently-launched ADF UHF capacity on IS-22 and other existing and future UHF SATCOM payloads, and is delivered under the JP2008 Phase 5A program.

“The capability provided through the NCS will utilise satellites in the Pacific and Indian Ocean regions and support the resources sharing partnership with the United States.” said Stephen Smith MP, Australian Minister for Defence. “The Network Control System will become a critical component for UHF communications capability for ADF personnel operating in the Middle East.”

The core of the NCSM will be Clearbox Systems’ satellite Network Management and Planning software called Foresight. Foresight will provide a single interface for controlling the entire NCS. Foresight allows operators to plan and coordinate the use of satellite resources, manage operator workflows to stand up/down links and display live spectrum monitoring of active links. Foresight’s existing functionality will be enhanced to support interoperability of Legacy Narrowband TDMA Waveforms and the more efficient Integrated Waveform (IW) enabling and increase in channel efficiency and bandwidth.
