BAE Systems has subcontracted PAR Technology’s subsidiary Rome Research to operate and maintain multiple communications facilities operating under naval computer and telecommunications area master station pacific (NCTAMS PAC) programme.

Under the $12.9m deal, PAR will offer critical command, control, telecommunications, computers, and intelligence (C4I) and strategic communications across the Pacific theater and Indian Ocean for the Department of Defense (DoD), National Security Agency, Missile Defense Agency, Homeland Security, and allies.

Work under the contract will be carried out for a period of 31 months.

"We are pleased that BAE Systems selected PAR Technology to support the NCTAMS PAC programme."

PAR government business Matt Cicchinelli said: "We are pleased that BAE Systems selected PAR Technology to support the NCTAMS PAC programme.

"PAR has a long history of integrating, managing, and controlling a variety of communications interfaces between the defense information system network terrestrial and tactical satellite communications assets and continues to provide critical support to numerous DoD operating locations around the world."

The main aim of the deal is to support daily operations at strategic military installations in Hawaii, specifically the Lualualei Naval Radio transmitter facility, Kaneohe Bay tactical support communications facility and Wahiawa DOD SATCOM facility.

PAR offers round-the-clock operations and maintenance of communications systems, supporting the deployed warfighter.

In addition, PAR personnel will offer support for the USAF High Frequency Global Communications System, a worldwide network of 15 high-power HF stations providing command and control communications between ground agencies and the US military aircraft and ships.
