Reading’s Fidelity Technologies Corp. in May 2014 landed a $21 million, five-year contract with the Navy to provide maintenance services for its largest battleship simulator.
This May, the company won two more five-year contracts, totaling more than $22 million – this time to support Navy aircraft training devices.
Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division awarded Fidelity’s field services division an $11 million contract to support training devices at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City, Okla. Fidelity began the work in May.
And last weekend, work began on an $11.4 million contract to provide support for aircraft training devices in Norfolk, Va., Point Mugu, Calif.
“Our field services division deploys teams of experienced engineering and technical specialists, as well as instructors, to ensure overall preparedness of our warfighters,” Fidelity Technologies president David Gulati said.
As part of the contracts, Fidelity will support a system of survivable communications links designed to be used in nuclear war to maintain contact between decision-makers and the nation’s strategic nuclear weapon delivery systems.
In addition, Fidelity will provide labor, materials, consumables, equipment, tools, test equipment and transportation to operate and maintain training systems/equipment.
The projects also will support the use of simulators, training devices, classroom and other training methods.
Fidelity also will provide the Navy with preventive maintenance, daily readiness testing, operational support, training device readiness/availability, corrective maintenance, inventory management, repair/replenishment of spares and sub-assemblies, janitorial support and administrative/management functions required to ensure compliance with federal, state and local policies and procedures.
Fidelity Technologies was founded in 1987 as a contract manufacturer specializing in circuit card assemblies and cable harnesses for the U.S. Department of Defense. The company has grown from a small contract manufacturer to a leading global supplier of defense and aerospace products and services to U.S. and international customers.
“We’re proud to be awarded these contracts,” Gulati said.
