Black Pearl

Black Pearl

Created for the U.S. Navy, this trusted DevSecOps platform speeds and unifies software development across DoD. It provides a common development environment that enables fast, cost-effective stand-up of software factories enterprise-wide.

This Navy-owned effort creates a development environment that embeds mandated security from the start. Built on the Black Pearl platform, it provides a shared space for developers—including Sigma Defense engineers—to develop software for AEGIS combat systems.

ICP Next

Maritime Surveillance Systems PMS 485

Sigma Defense was selected to create a new product architecture for the ICP system for Maritime Surveillance Systems (MSS). We developed a modern software factory supported by Agile development to deliver DevSecOps compliance, updated security and modern capabilities.

RAIL (Rapid Autonomy Integration Lab)


Using Black Pearl, the Navy created a development space to test and deliver capabilities for unmanned undersea vehicles. Black Pearl gave RAIL developers the compute power and connected environment to perform loop testing against real hardware as part of the pipeline.

FA-18 and EA-18G

PMA 265

The customer required support for Windows-based software development that Black Pearl did not offer. They partnered with the Black Pearl team—which includes Sigma Defense—to develop and integrate this capability. With Windows capabilities now available, the teams are now working to provision cloud-based Windows desktops.
