NEW HARTFORD — Rome Research Corporation, a subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation, was awarded a $6.8 million contract by the Navy to provide Teleport Commercial Satellite Terminal services at the Global Information Grid facility in Lago Patria, Italy.
RRC operates similar facilities for the Navy at Chesapeake, Va., and for the Army in Landstuhl, Germany, and at Camp Roberts in California.
"We are pleased that the Navy has selected Rome Research Corporation once again to support their I/T communications mission in Lago Patria, Italy. PAR’s expertise and knowledge in operating teleport systems at this and other locations, as well as its ability to provide experienced personnel at the lowest cost, were key factors in the award decision," Steve Lynch, president of PAR’s government operations, said. "We look forward to continuing to support the Navy’s communications mission at Lago Patria."
