Parsons has won a 10-year, $953 million contract to help the Air Force maintain layered base security systems at facilities in Europe and Africa.
U.S. Air Forces in Europe-Air Forces Africa received five total bids for the contract, according to the Defense Department’s Wednesday awards digest. The contract is a new requirement and thus there was no incumbent.
Solicitation documents indicate the Air Force sought cross-domain technology to strengthen the deterrence, survivability and defense posture of military bases on both continents.
Broad task areas are listed as:
- Program management
- Air base air defense operations, maintenance and logistics
- Air base air defense weapon systems
- Weapon system, sensor, and command and control integration
- Kinetic and non-kinetic counter-threat options
- Systems engineering and special studies
- Training and exercises
