Irvine, California, September 14, 2010 – STM Group, Inc. (“STM”) today announced the formal launch of its Government Division. STM is a world renowned leader in the DVB-RCS satellite communications segment, and an award-winner for its “Size, Weight, and Power” (SWAP) optimized cellular base station technology.  STM’s newly formed Government Division will focus on bringing these state-of-the-art open standards based technologies to the U.S. Government.


The new Division will help the U.S. Military and Federal agencies better capitalize on the DVB-RCS technology, which is already leading the industry in high-performance, bandwidth efficient VSAT networked solutions.  Through its Government Division, STM will leverage its advanced technology to supply Satcom products and services that can alleviate many of the existing bandwidth and coverage limitations faced in Government use of satellite communication.

Eric Sivertson will be leading the newly created STM Government Division LLC as its Chief Executive Officer.  Mr, Sivertson was previously General Manager of Xilink’s aerospace and defense business for three years, and prior to that he worked for Thales Communications Inc. for ten years as director of Software and Digital Engineering. Emil Youssefzadeh, CEO and founder of STM, said, “We are delighted with having Eric leading our entry into the US government market.  With his experience and knowledge in secure communications, Eric can help meet the growing demand by US military for a standards based product that can be truly interoperable among multiple platforms.”
