Solute Awarded Contract Modification to Support, Modernize US Navy Systems
The Department of Defense has modified a contract it awarded to Sigma Defense company Solute for Automated Digital Network Systems support services. Under the modification valued at $32 million, the company will continue providing the Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific with system, network, cyber, software engineering and program management services and help modernize the U.S. Navy’s information systems architecture, Sigma Defense Systems said.
NIWC Pacific uses ADNS to securely and autonomously perform command, control, communications, computer and intelligence data transmission between surface vessels, submarines and shore.
Solute won the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract on Nov. 30, 2020, funded by the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command. It has a potential value of $83.66 million. According to the modification announcement, work will be performed in Wahiawa, Hawaii; Norfolk, Virginia; Providence, Rhode Island; Charleston, South Carolina; Bahrain; and Italy, with a performance period ending in November 2026.
Solute was acquired by Sigma Defense in January. The transaction combined their technologies aimed at autonomously connecting people, systems and information. Solute expected the deal to result in strengthened relationships within the Department of the Navy and enhanced support capabilities for digital modernization efforts within the Department of Defense.
According to Matt Jones, CEO of Sigma Defense, the acquisition is in line with his company’s strategy of delivering a comprehensive suite of products for the Joint All-Domain Command and Control warfighting concept, which links data sensors, shooters and communications devices of all U.S. military services.
