SigmaPoint gets federal government subcontract

CORNWALL – It’s another feather in the cap for SigmaPoint and up to 20 more jobs.

The Cornwall manufacturer has landed a subcontracting position on a $138 million contract for the federal government to manufacture circuit boards.

SigmaPoint will work with General Dynamics Canada of Ottawa to upgrade 11,060 combat net radios and 6,800 vehicle interface units for the Canadian Armed Forces.

The contract will cover a period ending in March, 2017.

Combat net radios are used in armoured vehicles and personnel carriers for transmitting and receiving tactical voice and data communications.

Vehicle interface units are amplifiers that boost the signal from the radio.
