Sigma Design supports U.S. Navy shipboard defense systems
Sigma was very excited to work on another project with the U.S. Navy. Talk about a project in ‘our wheelhouse’ as they say. Jerry Lynch, a ‘tin can sailor’ who served as a destroyer GMG2 gunner was thrilled to have the opportunity to work on this special project supporting shipboard defense systems for Navy operations.
Michael Collins, the lead engineer on the NAVSEA project worked for the U.S. Navy in Philadelphia before coming to Sigma. This project requires the creative design of safety features while providing 50% more power through their hydraulic power supply system. With operating pressures in excess of 3000 psi, the pressure compensation and hydraulic shock suppression systems were key features in the new design. This HPU joins the growing roster of Sigma’s products designed and built in NJ. Sigma is proud to have the opportunity to work with the Navy to improve operational shipboard defense systems used around the globe but made in NJ.
