Parsons wins $935M Air Force base security contract

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
