NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. -- November 14, 2012
PAR Technology Corporation (NYSE:PAR) announced today that the U.S. Navy
awarded its subsidiary, Rome Research Corporation (RRC), a contract to provide
telecommunications operations and maintenance services at the Global
Information Grid (GIG) facility at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, Africa. The
value of the contract is $14.2 million, with a performance period of 5 years.
This site will join the many other communications facilities that RRC operates
for the Navy in the United States and throughout the world.
“We are pleased that the U.S. Navy has selected RRC as its preferred provider
for communications services at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Africa — the only
U.S. Military installation in Africa. Our communications operations and
maintenance (O&M) responsibility will include support to the Combined Joint
Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA) as well as several other tenants at Camp
Lemonnier,” commented Steve Lynch, President of PAR Technology’s Government
Operations. “We are committed to providing the Navy with the most
cost-effective solution and to delivering unsurpassed quality, value and
customer satisfaction. RRC’s 12 years of experience supporting multiple NCTAMS
LANT telecommunications O&M contracts uniquely positions the RRC team to
achieve the Command’s operational requirements in Djibouti.”
As a critical team member of NCTAMS LANT Detachment, Camp Lemonnier, RRC’s
mission will be to provide critical 24/7/365 communications O&M services in
support of CJTF-HOA as well as a variety of other tenant commands and U.S.
Federal Agencies. RRC’s support to U.S. and coalition forces will be a key
enabler for successful operations throughout the Horn of Africa. Camp
Lemonnier is located adjacent to the Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport
and is home to a multinational force of more than 3000 personnel along with
nearly 800 local national personnel.
