Ingenicomm Acquires Programmable Telemetry Processor (PTP) Product Line

Chantilly, VA, November 26, 2012 – Ingenicomm announced today that it has acquired the Programmable Telemetry Processor (PTP) product line from CVG-Avtec Systems, a subsidiary of Kratos Defense & Security Solutions. The PTP has long been one of the industry’s leading front-end processor solutions for the satellite ground station and integration and testing (I&T) markets, with units deployed on every continent and with every major space agency around the world. The PTP provides integrated multi-stage and multi-mission support, allowing ground stations and satellite and payload manufacturers to reduce costs by eliminating mission-specific processors.

“Ingenicomm’s engineers have decades of experience developing and supporting this product line,” said Amit Puri, President & CEO of Ingenicomm. “Our unique understanding of the intricacies of the PTP will allow us to provide superior support to its many users and guarantee the continued longevity of the product.

Following the acquisition, Ingenicomm will continue to support new and existing programs as well as providing operations and maintenance services for PTP customers.

Ingenicomm Receives SBA 8(a) Certification

Entry into the Small Business Administration’s 8(a) Business Development Program Provides Ingenicomm with a Valuable Advantage in Federal Government Contracting

Chantilly, VA, October 29, 2011 – Ingenicomm, a service and product provider specializing in satellite ground system/network architecture, announced today that it has completed certification as part of the Small Business Administration’s 8(a) business development program. The certification allows Ingenicomm to pursue federal government contracts set aside for 8(a) companies, as well as receiving sole-source contracts directly from government agencies.

The 8(a) program is designed to assist socially and economically disadvantaged entrepreneurs in gaining access to the federal government contracting market. Over the course of a nine-year business development program, the SBA provides training and support to help companies establish a solid foundation in federal contracting.

Approval to enter the 8(a) program is granted only after completing a rigorous review of a company’s ownership, management, operations, experience and financials to ensure that applicants meet the exacting standards set for certification. Due to the strength of Ingenicomm’s corporate management and financial performance, the Small Business Administration (SBA) waived the usual requirement that a company be in business for two years prior to being certified.

One of the goals of the 8(a) program is to allow non-8(a) contractors to expand their scope of services. 8(a) contractors are permitted, with the approval of the SBA, to sub-contract a portion of the work to qualified non-8(a) firms, thereby creating an experienced and well-rounded team that ultimately benefits the client. Recent changes also permit 8(a) firms to form joint ventures and enter into mentor-protégé relationships to enhance their ability to perform larger prime contracts.

“Receiving our 8(a) certification is the culmination of a long journey, but one which will yield positive results for our organization,” said Amit Puri, President and CEO of Ingenicomm. “We are excited about capitalizing on this certification to offer our unique services and satellite ground system products to federal government agencies, and look forward to showing our commitment to the missions they support.”
