PAR technology subsidiary awarded $8.2 m air force I/T communications support contract.
This contract calls for RRC to provide communications support services at the Technical Control Facility, and Visual Information and Publication/Forms Management. The Technical Control Facility, a Defense Information Infrastructure Facility, is a critical link in the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) worldwide communication network. The contract period of performance is four years.
Among the units supported by the 15th Communications Squadron at Hickam Air Force Base are the Commander Pacific Air Forces (PACAF). PACAF, the air component of the U.S. Pacific Command, controls four numbered air forces composed of over 45,000 military and civilian personnel spread across the Pacific Rim, from Alaska to Guam.
"This is a significant and groundbreaking award for Rome Research. Hickam Air Force Base is the first I/T facility support contract outside of the eight Naval facilities RRC is currently operating. With the experience gained providing similar services to the Navy, we have broadened our customer base to other branches of the Department of Defense," commented Al Lane, RRC President. "We are pleased to support the mission of the Air Force's 15th Communications Squadron, and we will continue to seek out additional opportunities to expand our customer base to other military installations within the four uniformed branches."
