Parsons Corporation has received an $18 million task order to provide air-base air-defense (ABAD) capabilities for US Air Forces-Europe (USAFE) and Air Forces Africa (AFAFRICA) bases across the Europe and Africa theatre.
The task order has one base year with two option years and will be performed at Ramstein Air Base, Germany. The ABAD capabilities will address threats ranging from unmanned aerial systems to cruise missiles.
In 2021, Parsons won a 10-year, $953 million single-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for USAFE and AFARICA to design, mature, procure, integrate, operate, and maintain ABAD systems across the European and African continent areas of responsibility.
Parsons will be responsible for consolidation of ABAD technical baseline capabilities at the Ramstein Air Defense Systems Integration Laboratory (RADSIL) integration annex, establishing an ABAD training capability, developing an operational ABAD early warning capability, and producing the ABAD technical baseline and providing systems engineering support.
“The global threat environment continues evolving at a rapid pace that is exceeding our existing air defense approach and requires more flexible, innovative solutions to ensure force protection,” said John Scarlett, Parsons ABAD program manager. “Our team is partnering with the Air Force to continue transforming the battlespace by developing scalable, responsive, all-domain air base defense systems that quickly detect, alert, deny, and defeat threats ranging from across the spectrum.”
