Arlington Capital Partners-backed BlueHalo announced it has acquired Ipsolon Research.
Founded in 2018, Ipsolon designs and manufactures high-performance, ultra-small form factor software-defined radios for use in mission-critical spaces constrained by harsh environments.
“As SDRs continue to become more critical and ubiquitous in the development of next generation technology across the full portfolio of BlueHalo’s products, Ipsolon stood out as a perfect fit to further accelerate our mission and create efficiencies for our customers, deliver rapid capabilities, and facilitate increased creativity by having in-house SDR capabilities,” said BlueHalo CEO Jonathan Moneymaker.
Ipsolon’s flagship SDR products include Cerberus, which offers leading functionalities and features in a small form factor that is made for movement on land and air, and Chameleon, which provides substantial processing and multi-antenna capabilities in a single SDR module.
“We are incredibly excited to partner with BlueHalo as we continue to deliver innovative solutions to our customers,” said Ipsolon CEO and founder John Shanton.
The acquisition of Ipsolon directly complements several ongoing strategic and technological initiatives at BlueHalo and will allow for expedited timeframes for rapid prototyping and product delivery while ensuring quality across the supply chain, the company said.
“Adding Ipsolon’s cutting-edge SDR technology and agile engineering workforce to BlueHalo will allow the company to accelerate its product development lifecycle,” said David Wodlinger, a managing partner at Arlington Capital Partners.
