November 15, 2018 – PAR Technology Corporation today announced that the U.S. Navy has awarded its subsidiary, Rome Research Corporation (RRC), a five-year $7.3 million contract. The award calls for RRC to provide 24/7/365 operation and maintenance support of the Naval Radio Transmitter Facility (NRTF) Aguada, Puerto Rico and its Low Frequency (LF) Fixed Submarine Broadcasting System (FSBS) with periods of performance from September, 2018 – August 2023.
“We are pleased that the U.S. Navy has selected Rome Research Corporation as its contractor to furnish operations and maintenance services providing reliable, uninterrupted FSBS communications to the warfighter”
The FSBS provides strategic and tactical communications to U.S. and allied submarine forces in the Atlantic. NRTF Aguada is a remote facility under command of the Naval Computer and Telecommunications Area Master Station Atlantic (NCTAMS LANT), Norfolk, VA.
“We are pleased that the U.S. Navy has selected Rome Research Corporation as its contractor to furnish operations and maintenance services providing reliable, uninterrupted FSBS communications to the warfighter,” commented Matt Cicchinelli, President of PAR’s Government Business. “We are committed to supporting the Navy’s strategic and tactical communications mission while delivering unsurpassed quality, value and customer satisfaction.”
During Hurricane Maria, which affected Puerto Rico and the NRTF Aguada site in September 2017, RRC partnered with the NRTF Aguada customer that quickly restored operations despite significant challenges with flooding and logistics.
Contract support services include transmitter site operations and maintenance, antenna tower maintenance, facilities upkeep and grounds maintenance.
