Sigma Defense receives DoD tactical relay task order
On May 10, Perry, GA-based Sigma Defense announced that it has been awarded a $6.4 million Department of Defense (DoD) task order in support of the Block II Tactical Relay efforts under the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) portfolio. This award is a technology refresh to upgrade legacy Sigma Defense Stingray systems, and provide resilient and effective access to ISR sensor data, enabling connectivity between battlefield sensors and commanders and warfighters to leverage data for intelligence.
These new Stingray systems will support U.S. forces under United States Africa Command (USAFRICOM) backhauling ISR sensor data from unmanned aerial systems. Sigma Defense holds an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quality (IDIQ) contract for DoD ISR Backhaul to provide data relay and airborne ISR, which includes two-way communications, processing, and data transport.
“We are very pleased to be able to support DoD ISR capabilities in the Africa Command, ensuring the men and women serving our country have access to critical information and intelligence when they need it,” said Matt Jones, chief executive officer at Sigma Defense. “Our ability to transmit and analyze data from multiple disparate sources is a key enabler of the DoD’s sensor to shooter architecture and is another step forward to making Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) a reality. We look forward to providing even more enhanced capabilities in the future.”
