WASHINGTON, DC., May 7, 2019 – Envistacom announced today during SATELLITE 2019 that it has
completed the acquisition of Fast Fit Technologies , the leader in virtualized communication waveforms
and data analytics solutions. This acquisition represents a strategic expansion for Envistacom adding to
the company’s Intellectual Property portfolio and positioning Envistacom to serve as a communication
waveform and data analytics virtualization integrator for future Department of Defense network
modernization efforts.

Based upon an initial Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract award and multiple subsequent
waveform virtualization contracts with the US ARMY, US NAVY, and other related customers, Fast Fit
Technologies has demonstrated its clear leadership position in this arena. This acquisition will enable
Envistacom to virtualize the entire communications architecture to provide ultimate flexibility and
resiliency for current and next generation satellite constellations and global communications networks.
The vision is a common communication network infrastructure that can host any communications
infrastructure’s waveform as virtualized applications selectable in real-time from a library of IP cores by
the user.

Located in Frederick, Maryland, Fast Fit Technologies is the pioneer of open-source communication
waveform and data analytics virtualization using the OpenCL framework for heterogenous computing
and targeting COTS High-Performance Computing (HPC) servers equipped with FPGA-based hardware
acceleration. The company has virtualized a number of waveforms and other applications that are
available as a library for customer use. During live demonstrations, their high performance optimized
OpenCL library of cores delivered performance comparable to purpose built hardware. Moreover, the
virtualized applications can be hosted in a private data center with HPC servers or can be hosted as a
cloud-based application using Public data center resources. Envistacom will continue to expand this
highly optimized virtual library with additional open-standard and proprietary waveforms as well as
other data analytics and network applications.

“With the emergence of High Capacity Satellite (HCS) and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) networks, proprietary
waveforms are often developed to optimize the performance of those networks. These unique systems
have traditionally required purpose-built and often proprietary modem hardware,” said Michael Geist,
Vice President, Strategy and Technology, Envistacom. “Virtualization will allow users who require
network flexibility and resiliency to benefit from the ability to operate across networks, satellites and
constellations without being limited by any single ecosystem.”

“The combined team will realize a virtualization strategy providing a scalable hardware agnostic solution
with support for any communications infrastructure (terrestrial radio, tactical radio, satellite, cellular,
etc.) and support for any and all virtualized waveforms and data analytics requirements,” said Michael
Beeler, COO of Fast Fit Technologies. “Our expertise in virtualization will play an integral role in
developing a communications network infrastructure that is waveform agnostic, flexible, resilient and
minimizes dependency on purpose-built communications equipment,” said Kasra Toyserkani, CTO of Fast
Fit Technologies.
