iDirect Technologies Sets Up Wholly Owned Subsidiary, iDirect Government Technologies Inc., To Expand Government Business
iDirect Inc. (iDirect), a company of Vision Technologies Systems Inc. (VT Systems), today announced it has set up iDirect Government Technologies (iGT) Inc. as a wholly owned subsidiary to drive broader adoption of its IP-based satellite networking solutions in the government market. John Ratigan, who has served as iDirect’s vice president for U.S. federal sales, has been named President of iGT.
Satellite networks increasingly play a critical role in government and defense applications – from mobile communications to global logistics and disaster recovery. iDirect’s bandwidth-efficient, highly secure, IP-based platform has rapidly become the technology of choice for many mission-critical applications. In just four years, multiple US government agencies and military branches have selected iDirect to support diverse operations domestically and abroad, including:
The Combat Service Support (CSS) VSAT network, which enables combat support personnel to transmit supply requisitions remotely in real time, eliminating the need to expose couriers to unnecessary danger
Command and control units, which are adopting iDirect’s Communications on the Move (COTM) solution to achieve more cost-efficient use of ultra-small antennas on aircraft, maritime and land-based vehicles and establish global mobile networks
Emergency communications services provided by the U.S. National Guard and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
The Morale Welfare and Recreation Program, which allows troops overseas to communicate with family members both by phone and email
“iDirect has achieved double-digit annual growth rate in government sales, and its technology platform is widely considered the standard for IP-based satellite communications within the US Government . It is imperative that a subsidiary be created to establish a singular focus on the specialized demands of the government market. VT Systems is committed to investing in this new venture, which will deepen our leadership position and expand iGT into new market opportunities.”

Chairman and CEO, VT Systems, Inc.
“iDirect has developed the leading satellite platform for government and defense communications and the only TRANSEC compliant, FIPS certified security package in the satellite industry that meets the stringent requirements set forth by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. We’ve earned the trust to serve many of the government’s most critical communications efforts and are well prepared to meet the rapidly growing demands of the US government as well as government organizations worldwide.”
