PEO USC Grants Sigma Defense $59M Contract for Unmanned Vehicle Automation

The Program Executive Office for Unmanned and Small Combatants has awarded Sigma Defense a five-year, $59 million Autonomy Baseline Manager contract to integrate autonomy software for unmanned vehicles under the office.

Sigma will deliver tools and employ DevSecOps and Agile methodologies using the Rapid Autonomy Integration Lab process to enable autonomous capabilities in unmanned systems.

Awarded through the Program Manager Ships, Unmanned Maritime Systems program, the single-award cost-plus fixed-fee contract comes with a one-year base period plus four option years, Sigma said.

Ed Anderson, executive vice president at Sigma Defense, said the company provided essential support to several of the U.S. Navy’s vital projects, including Black Pearl and the Rapid Autonomy Integration Lab. Sigma is building on the success it saw in previous initiatives to deliver tools, processes and integration expertise that meet the needs of the PMS, he added.

The company recently introduced Sigma Software Studio, a DevSecOps platform developed with Black Pearl and the Navy’s Program Executive Office for Digital and Enterprise Services to modernize software solutions across the Department of the Navy.
