NEW HARTFORD, N.Y., Aug. 8 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy has tapped a subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation to operate and maintain a satellite communications facility under a firm-fixed-price contract.

The Navy Satellite Communications Facility, or NAVSATCOMMFAC, is located in Chesapeake, Va. It is an information gateway that supports the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency Global Information Grid and provides satellite and terrestrial connectivity for voice, video, and data to ships, submarines, aircraft and ground forces operating worldwide,

Under the contract, Rome Research Corporation will provide operation and maintenance service for 27 satellite terminals operating in both the military and civilian satellite communication frequency bands.

"We are proud that the Navy has selected RRC to continue to support this important effort at NAVSATCOMMFAC Northwest," said RRC President Steve Lynch. "RRC's success is only possible through the commitment and expertise of our dedicated employees."
