(Reading, Pa., June 11, 2007) -- Fidelity Technologies Corp. (Fidelity) of Reading, Pa. announced today it received a $310,000 military contract to build 3,000 surface wire grounding kits for the U.S. Army's Communications Electronics Command (CECOM) at Fort Monmouth, Eatontown, N.J.
CECOM issued the award to Fidelity as a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. "We anticipate receiving more production orders over the next five years under this contract", said Fidelity General Manager, Charles Gulati.
"Grounding kits are essential to soldiers, as they provide 'earth-ground,' which facilitates better communications and sensor performance by reducing interference and distortion," Gulati said. "Also, these kits provide significantly improved lightning strike survivability."
