Envistacom will spin off its technology development business unit – Advanced Technologies Group – into an independent company that will focus on the development of transport virtualization platform and multibeam, multifrequency antenna systems to deliver secure wireless connectivity.
Michael Geist, senior vice president of strategy and technology at Envistacom, will serve as president of the standalone entity that will operate under the name Apothym Technologies Group and will be based in Peachtree Corners, Georgia, Envistacom said Wednesday.
Geist said ATG, as an independent company, will work to exceed customers’ requirements and support their operational strategies by delivering capabilities in the field of transport virtualization and antenna technologies amid the technological advancement in the area of satellite communications.
ATG will run a research and development facility in Frederick, Maryland, and make its official launch at the four-day Satellite 2022 conference, which will kick off on March 21 in Washington, D.C.
Envistacom President Alan Carson said the change will enable the two companies to concentrate on their respective markets while allowing ATG to continue developing new technologies to meet the requirements of warfighters and commercial clients.
Atlanta-based Envistacom is a disadvantaged woman-owned small business providing communications, intelligence, cyber platforms and services to customers in defense, intelligence and aerospace sectors.
