PAR Government starts 2023 with a win


ROME — PAR Government is a leader in providing computer-based system design, engineering and technical services to the Department of Defense and various federal agencies. An ISO 9001:2015 and 27001:2013 certified company, PAR Government is a wholly owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation (PAR), a leading global provider of software, systems, and service solutions to the restaurant and retail industries.

Rome Research Corporation (RRC), a subsidiary of PAR Government Systems Corporation, was founded in the 1970’s as a Technical Services supplier. While initial contracts supported antenna and RF testing, RRC has since transitioned into a premier technical services company providing worldwide on-site support to the US Department of Defense in the areas of strategic communications, satellite control, and information systems.

Michael Nelson has served as president of PAR Government since December 2021.

Following the appointment of Nelson, 2022 was a year of rebuilding and growth.

Major accomplishments in 2022

• Rebranding of its cloud-based situational awareness suite Sit(x). This commercial solution is designed for enhanced collaboration among government and civilian public safety organizations. Sit(x) is based on the Team Awareness Kit (TAK) situational awareness technology that PAR Government developed for the U.S. Defense and Intelligence Community under contract to the Department of Defense (DoD). This technology has been deployed under demanding conditions by every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces over the past decade.

• Demonstrated the integration of BlackSky’s (NYSE: BKSY) commercial satellite data into Sit(x), allowing tactical and operational end users to access near real-time imagery on the Tactical Assault Kit (TAK) mobile platform.

• Upgraded its popular geospatial Gv3.0 raster imagery and full-motion video (FMV) viewing package. The changes addressed Java updates and open-source issues reported in the National Vulnerability Database, ensuring security.

• The geospatial suite of programs was selected by the Defense Information Systems Agency to help support the Global Command and Control System - Joint (GCCS-J). Pronounced “Geeks-J,” this contract has a value of more than $700,000 for a total of $1.17M over three years. GCCS-J is the DoD’s effort to create a secure, interoperable system designed to meet current and future warfighter requirements.

• Secured a spot on a $4.8B indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract supporting the U.S. Air Force’s National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) Scientific and Technical Intelligence (S&TI) Capability Support Services (NOVASTAR). NOVASTAR facilitates NASIC’s requirement for research, development, sustainment of new and existing hardware and systems, and software capabilities enabling scientific and technical intelligence production for the Air Force, Do), and national-level intelligence efforts.

• Unveiled new features to Sit(x). The improvements allow greater collaboration among government and civilian public safety organizations, and improves TAK interoperability and security for all users.

What’s new for 2023?

Already, PAR Government has started the year off with a win. The U.S. Navy awarded its subsidiary, Rome Research Corporation (RRC), a five-year $21 million contract to provide uninterrupted operations and maintenance (O&M) support at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Africa. RRC provides over 90% of Department of Defense (DoD) communications for the entire continent of Africa. RRC has supported the Camp Lemonnier facility since 2012.

In other news, its team was recently asked to join Amazon Web Services (AWS) invitation-only technical briefing on AWS Wickr for end-to-end encrypted communications, and the Android Team Awareness Kit (ATAK) for situational awareness. AWS Wickr provides advanced security and administrative controls that can help you protect sensitive messages and files from unauthorized access, while meeting data retention requirements. ATAK’s digital mapping capabilities help you accurately share information and coordinate among teams, enabling faster mission planning and execution. 

Closer to home, PAR Government is moving across town to a new location -- 160 Brooks Road in Rome. The change was made to be closer to critical government customers. The new 14,000-square-foot second-floor space enables broader, real-time collaboration, both internally and externally, and better supports the needs of a modern hybrid workforce.
