ST Engineering’s iDirectGov Buys Glowlink in Satcom Tech Expansion Push

Jeff Brody

ST Engineering has acquired Glowlink Communications Technology through its iDirect Government subsidiary for approximately $25M.

The transaction was completed through a merger between of Glowlink and Intrepid Merger Sub with the former being the surviving organization, ST Engineering said Tuesday.

Mountain View, Calif.-based Glowlink develops technology platforms designed to enhance satellite communications by detecting and eliminating satellite signal interferences. The company’s patented algorithm tool – Communication Signal Interference Removal – isolates and removes satcom interferences in real time.

“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,” said Ravinder Singh, president of ST Engineering’s electronics sector.

“The complementary product suite provides immediate benefit to iDirectGov’s user community as it enhances product resilience against signal interference,” Singh added.
