Envistacom’s Frederick Maryland R&D Center Continues to Grow

Envistacom, LLC, a leading technology company opened its Frederick, Maryland research and development center in February 2020. Envistacom delivers advanced communications, cyber, and intelligence services and solutions to its customers, primarily the US Government and Department of Defense. Centrally located in Maryland between Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C., the center is in an ideal location for access by our customers as well as for attracting top talent. The office allows expansion for over 50 employees and over the next several years, Envistacom will continue to hire employees with a range of experience and skill levels.

The company has continued hiring efforts throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, with several virtual recruiting events for the Frederick location coming up starting in February 2021. Recruitment efforts will take place at universities and colleges within the region to search for graduates and interns in much needed technical disciplines such as electrical and computer engineering or computer science. Seasoned professionals who seek new challenges in this industry and who want to work for an innovative, fast-growing company will also enjoy working in the local thriving community.

The Frederick office has a strong focus on advancing Envistacom’s Transport Virtualization Ecosystem technology. The local team will support the development and productization of cutting-edge, high-speed processing hardware and software applications using heterogeneous, high-performance computing (HPC) architectures. Our technology solutions will provide increased agility and resilience for satellite and tactical radio networks using high-level programming languages to create digital signal processing waveform applications traditionally developed on FPGAs or ASICs with low-level hardware descriptive languages. Virtualized waveform applications running on HPC platforms are targeted for deployment in the cloud, private data center, satellite teleport, cellular tower, or embedded tactical applications.

Envistacom’s Frederick R&D center is also a recipient of two Navy Conventional Prompt Strike (CPS) Program Office’s $6.5 million Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts aiming to leverage the creativity and agility of small businesses to accelerate advances in hypersonic technology. The Navy is the lead service for design and development of the Hypersonic Glide Body and All-Up Round. Envistacom is excited to be able to help in the development of that technology at our Frederick office.

In December 2020, the Board of Governors of the Israel-U.S. Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Foundation approved $7.45 million in funding for eight new projects between U.S. and Israeli companies. Envistacom was a recipient of the funding in which they will partner with Ayecka Communication Systems (Kfar Saba, Israel) to build a Satellite Communication and 5G Virtual Modem Edge device to enable waveform technologists and service providers to input digitized proprietary waveforms for wireless transmission. This work will be done at the company’s Frederick facility.

Headquartered in Atlanta, Envistacom has additional R&D and Innovation Centers located in Georgia. In 2020, Envistacom was selected as one of the Top 40 Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) and a Military Times’ Best for Vets employer. The company also operates in several other U.S. locations and in more than 10 countries. To learn more about Envistacom and discover career opportunities, visit www.envistacom.com.
