SANTA FE, N.M., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sigma Labs, Inc. (OTCBB: SGLB.OB) announced today that it was awarded on March 23, 2011, a Phase I Small Business Innovation and Research (SBIR) contract by the US Navy for rapid qualification of parts made using Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM).
Mark Cola, President of Sigma Labs, stated, "We are pleased to receive this contract, which will generate up to $150,000 in revenues, as it enhances our current US Air Force Phase II SBIR contract that we expect to complete in 2011 and will generate up to $750,000 in revenues.
