Parsons to Deploy Counter-Nuclear Smuggling Systems Under $1B NNSA Contract

Parsons has secured a position on a $1 billion contract awarded by the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Nuclear Smuggling Detection and Deterrence.

The contract has an initial three-year base period with optional extensions, potentially reaching a total of seven years, and aims to deploy advanced counter-nuclear smuggling detection systems across the globe, Parsons said.

Under the contract, Parsons will support tasks related to system design, implementation, training, communications and equipment procurement. Parsons has already received two task orders to strengthen the United States’ international partners’ capabilities to stop the illicit movement of nuclear materials.

The new contract work will expand Parsons’ role in delivering nonproliferation and security systems integration to the federal government. The company has a longstanding relationship with the Department of Energy, providing infrastructure and environmental solutions for 80 years, and has supported the NNSA since 2012.

Jon Moretta, president of Parsons’ engineered systems division, noted Parsons’ expertise in national security solutions and said the collaboration will strengthen global nuclear security and aid the U.S. government’s nonproliferation efforts.
