CENTREVILLE, VA (Jan. 25, 2021) – Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) announced today that it would lead an industry team of Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), SAIC (NYSE: SAIC), and SRC, Inc., in pursuit of a 10-year, $953 million effort with the U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa to design, mature, procure, integrate, operate, and maintain Air Base Air Defense (ABAD) systems across the European and African continent areas of responsibility.
“As asymmetric threats from emerging technologies continue to proliferate, we’re focused on developing a flexible, responsive, all-domain air base defense system to rapidly detect, alert, deny or defeat threats ranging from low-cost irregular attacks to hypersonic weapons,” said Shaun McGrath, ABAD program manager at Parsons. “Our team’s open architecture, platform-agnostic approach, coupled with cutting edge technologies and innovation labs, brought together by a team with relevant operational experience in all-domain systems integration, creates a best value and highly capable offering that will deliver scalable air base air defense systems to protects warfighters and their assets today and into the future.”
The Parsons team will focus on the maturation of an all-domain system comprised of commercial off-the-shelf and government off-the-shelf software and hardware technologies with an integrated design to protect existing and future air bases.
