SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 14, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integral Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:ISYS) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, SAT Corporation, has been chosen by Hispasat, S.A. to upgrade its existing Monics Carrier Monitoring System at their ground stations in Spain and Argentina. The upgrade will extend Monics superior carrier monitoring and interference detection to Hispasat's 1E Satellite, which is scheduled to be launched later this year or early next year.

Utilizing SAT Corporation's Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, Monics is a state of the art radio frequency monitoring system that will provide automatic monitoring of Hispasat 1E carriers. The Monics system delivers carrier monitoring and interference detection in a fraction of the time of a classic spectrum analyzer. In addition, Monics' unique algorithms automatically detect, characterize, and display interfering signals, allowing results to be viewed at any time.

"Hispasat has relied on Monics' advanced monitoring and interference detection for more than 10 years to help ensure Quality of Service (QoS) and to meet Service Level Agreements (SLA) for its customers," said Bob Potter, president of SAT Corporation. "In addition, because Monics is able to identify interference in a matter of seconds, satellite operators and service providers are able to increase margins and lower costs."

SAT Corporation's Monics system uses digital signal-processing technology to automatically monitor all uplink and downlink carriers as well as the beacon in each satellite. This automatic process provides immediate alerts when a carrier problem arises. Monics' open architecture easily interfaces with planning tools and Geolocation products such as Integral Systems' satID Geolocation system. The geolocation service is intended to deter malicious or accidental disruption of satellite communications services while allowing customers to identify and locate the source of interference.
