The SIGMA platform enables real-time acquisition, communication, processing, storage, and situational
awareness of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) data from distributed
sensors and associated secondary sensors such as cameras. At its heart, the SIGMA platform is a secure
cloud-based architecture for sensor data acquisition and monitoring, intended to keep national security
operations one step ahead of the threat.

SIGMA was designed as a geographically distributed network capable of scaling to receive data from
thousands of CBRNE sensors with a wide range of sensing capabilities. In many cases, continuously
streaming reading events are transmitted from distributed sensor systems, and analysed using advanced
analysis algorithms to provide automated anomaly detection and threat identification. In other cases,
existing systems transmit packaged alerts to the SIGMA platform for display. SIGMA delivers analytical
outcomes to users through a variety of interfaces, including a web-based situational awareness display,
and a smartphone application for operators on the ground.
