Sigma Defense announced the acquisition of EWA Inc., a prominent player in the field of Electronic Warfare (EW) headquartered in Herndon, Virginia. With over 47 years of experience in developing and delivering EW capabilities, EWA provides a comprehensive understanding of evolving threats across the electromagnetic spectrum. The acquisition of EWA will enhance Sigma Defense’s ability to deliver on the CJADC2 vision of “sense, make sense and act” delivering new capabilities to joint and coalition forces. JADC2 is a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) acronym which stands for Joint All Domain Command and Control, a strategic warfighting concept that connects the data sensors, shooters, and related communications devices of all U.S. military services and eventually allied partners into one integrated “network-of-networks.” EWA’s long history of delivering EW technologies to the DoD and National Security stakeholders aligns with Sigma Defense’s software led approach, augmenting its CJADC2 ecosystem for collecting, analyzing, and distributing data for near real-time intelligence. This strategic move further advances Sigma Defense’s vision enabling the company to provide a comprehensive understanding of evolving threats across the electromagnetic spectrum.

Matt Jones, CEO of Sigma Defense, noted the significance of the acquisition and the impact it will have to the warfighter, stating, “We are honored to continue the amazing work that Carl Guerreri, the founder of EWA, started over 4 decades ago, and has built into a world class electronic warfare systems and solutions organization. The electromagnetic spectrum is a critical source of signature data that must be collected, analyzed, distributed, and acted on with speed, the same as all other elements of CJADC2. Understanding the full impact of EW attack and countermeasures is a critical component against a near peer adversary, so the alignment between EWA and Sigma Defense was a natural fit that accelerates our ability to deliver new solutions for our customers. We are very proud to welcome the EWA team to the Sigma Defense family.”

“We started EWA in 1977 supporting the U.S Army Missile Intelligence Agency and over 47 years it has grown to provide electronic warfare solutions, testing and training, threat simulators and more across the U.S Army, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, and other U.S. National Security agencies. We have continued to evolve to best serve the needs of our customers, and the Sigma Defense partnership represents the next step in our evolution as a company to respond to the ‘sense, make sense, and act capabilities’ requirements for CJADC2,” said Carl Guerreri, Founder, CEO, and President of EWA.
