Fidelity Technologies Corp. (Fidelity) today announced a $10.5 million contract with the U.S. Navy to provide maintenance and operational support for six surface warfare training locations across the country.
The five-year contract for Surface Contractor Operation and Maintenance Services (SURFACE COMS) was entered into with the Naval Air Warfare Center – Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD).
Under the contract, Fidelity will provide all labor and materials needed to maintain the surface warfare training systems at six Naval locations including Little Creek, Dam Neck and Norfolk in Virginia and Coronado, Point Loma and San Diego in California.
Fidelity’s expertise in simulation training systems and its capacity to place its experts wherever they are needed were valuable assets that made the company the best choice for the job. A wide range of training equipment is covered under the contract, including trainers for amphibious landing craft, hovercraft, small arms fire, forward observers and other naval surface warfare needs.
“While people tend to think of the Navy in terms of ships and aircraft, they have a need for a huge variety of simulation and training equipment,” explained David Gulati, president of Fidelity, based in Reading, Pa. “Everything from machine gun training to hovercraft landing simulation falls under the Navy’s umbrella and it is our job to ensure our war fighters will be ready should they be called into duty.”
The contract falls under Fidelity’s Field Services division, which deploys hundreds of experienced engineering and technical specialists for the training and maintenance needs of military locations across the United States.
