Sigma Defense LLC has acquired SOLUTE Inc., a technology and engineering firm that specializes in system modernization with a focus on software engineering, cybersecurity, cloud architectures and DevSecOps for defense agencies.
“The acquisition of SOLUTE furthers Sigma Defense’s strategy of delivering a comprehensive suite of products for the JADC2 construct,” said Matt Jones, CEO of Sigma Defense. “It is another step in helping our DOD customers modernize programs by leveraging open-source platform as a service concept to deliver mission critical software enablement for command and control (C2), autonomy and communications.”
Through the acquisition, Sigma Defense, a portfolio company of Sagewind Capital, is expanding its capabilities for C5ISR, JADC2 and tactical SATCOM communications. The combined company will deliver a comprehensive suite of software-led solutions and services that autonomously connect people, systems and information.
“I am extremely excited by the immediate value we will be able to deliver to our customers and how that will continue to grow over time,” Jones said. “Our nation’s ability to retain our advantage is underpinned by collaboration and speed to delivery, and we are ready to help.”
Together, Sigma Defense and SOLUTE can provide enhanced capabilities for digital modernization throughout the Defense Department, and the integration will strengthen SOLUTE relationships with the Department of the Navy.
SOLUTE’s DevSecOps programs include Black Pearl, which provides a shared development environment and platform-as-a-service capabilities that solve software delivery issues across the Navy enterprise.
“Sigma Defense aligns perfectly with the mission, capabilities and people of SOLUTE,” said John Lyons, CEO of SOLUTE. “Both organizations have a pedigree of delivering digital modernization for the DOD. Sigma Defense’s focus on hardware led solutions combined with SOLUTE’s software-led approach creates a powerful company that has the ability to deliver impeccable results for our DoD customers.”
Lyons will continue to oversee SOLUTE’s operations while supporting integration efforts.
