iDirect Government, the US subsidiary of Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd has acquired Glowlink Communications Technology, a provider of solutions to mitigate satellite interferences and improve the quality of satellite communications.
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.
“This acquisition builds off 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,” said Ravinder Singh, president of Electronics sector, ST Engineering.
