Sigma Defense Systems LLC has acquired Sub U Systems, expanding its capabilities for C5ISR, JADC2 and tactical SATCOM communications.
“The acquisition of Sub U aligns with our vision of autonomously connecting people, systems and data with an integrated hardware and software approach to communications,” said Matt Jones, CEO of Sigma Defense.
Sub U Systems was founded in 2008 and is a manufacturer of deployable tactical edge-of-network route, switch and computing technology. Together with Sigma Defense, the companies are positioned to deliver a broad range of software applications via a common hardware platform to include intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance relay, edge computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and analytics at the edge.
“We are very excited to be able to deliver a platform that will support leading edge solutions such as artificial intelligence and machine learning and analytics at the edge delivering sense, make sense and act capabilities supporting the DoD vision for JADC2,” Jones said.
“Sub U not only accelerates our vision for the future, but their customers will recognize immediate benefits through our ability to scale and deliver more in the way of engineering resources, manufacturing output and program management,” he added.
Keir Tomasso, president and founder of Sub U Systems, said Sigma Defense is a natural fit for Sub U Systems’ tactical communications and IP networking solutions. Tomasso will continue to oversee the company’s operations.
