Parsons to Deliver Air Defense Capabilities at Ramstein Air Base

Parsons has received an $18 million task order under a 10-year, $953 million single-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to equip the Ramstein Air Base in Germany with air-base air-defense capabilities to counter unmanned aerial systems, cruise missiles and other threats.

Work under the task order, including providing ABAD training and early warning capabilities, will be performed for one year, which may be extended for up to two years if options are exercised.

The IDIQ was awarded in 2021 to build, operate and maintain ABAD systems at various U.S. Air Forces-Europe and Air Forces Africa bases, Parsons said. According to a performance work statement, the capability would be deployed to other military installations within the European and African theaters following the work at RAB.

John Scarlett, ABAD program manager at Parsons, said the air base defense system can help ensure force protection, noting that it can rapidly detect, alert, deny and defeat threats.

Parsons established partnerships with other companies, including Leidos, Science Applications International Corp. and Stellar Solutions,  to support the ABAD effort.
