New task order

AFRL Retains Parsons for Development Support on Warfighting Software Technologies

The Air Force Research Laboratory has granted Parsons a $28 million contract for the company to continue servicing its Global Application Research, Development, Engineering and Maintenance program. Under the three-year cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, Parsons will provide such services as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance software baselines to GARDEM. 

Launched in 2019 as a $427 million multi-award contract vehicle, the program aims to update from multiple contractors the software baselines for all-domain battlegrounds, Parsons said Tuesday.

The company added that its new contract covers a three-year timeline to support the battlespace software capabilities of the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community in all domains. The contract also calls for Parsons to deploy its cyber capabilities to identify toolset vulnerabilities and deliver the enhancements to meet the requirements of the DOD, IC, the US Air Force and other federal agencies. 

The GARDEM tasks Parsons previously won include an initial three-year, $20 million contract awarded in December 2020. Other companies that initially worked on the program’s software baselines are American Systems, Booz Allen Hamilton, General Dynamics and Polaris Alpha.
