ST Engineering strengthens SATCOM capabilities

18th September 2019 - 07:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US subsidiary of Singapore Technologies Engineering (ST Engineering), iDirect Government, has acquired 100% ownership of Glowlink Communications Technology, the company announced on 17 September. 

The acquisition was carried out by way of a merger through a newly-incorporated special purpose vehicle, Intrepid Merger Sub, and Glowlink, with Glowlink being the surviving entity. 

Based in Mountain View, California, Glowlink delivers solutions that mitigate satellite interference and improve the quality of satellite communications (satcom). Its satellite network management solutions are able to detect and remove satellite signal interferences in an increasingly dense satellite space. As more satellites are launched in the coming years to meet the exponentially growing demand for connectivity in smart cities, there will be a significant increase in demand for anti-jam capabilities. 

Glowlink’s products span carrier and spectrum monitoring, interference detection and mitigation, geolocation, and satellite capacity planning which will augment iDirectGov’s advanced bandwidth-efficient, scalable and highly secure satellite solutions.

Ravinder Singh, president of Electronics sector, ST Engineering, said: ‘This acquisition builds [on] the strengths of both teams to expand our satcom offerings with technology tailored to protect mission-critical communications, especially in an increasingly dense signal environment with the advent of many small satellites and 5G. The complementary product suite provides immediate benefit to iDirectGov’s user community as it enhances product resilience against signal interference.’
