Navy taps Rome to operate comm facilities

The Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station Guam's communications facilities will be operated and maintained by Rome Research Corp. under a new contract that could be worth up to $25.6 million over four years.

Under the contract, Rome Research of Rome, N.Y., will provide around-the-clock technical services in support of the Navy radio telecommunications facility and Air Force Scope Command radio station in Barrigada, Guam. The company also will support the satellite communications facility and technical control facility in Finegayan, Guam.

The facilities are for command-and-control communications operations. The computer and telecommunications station provides command-and-control and fleet communications to Navy, joint and allied forces. It also handles computer and base communication services including voice, data and video.
