Parsons will provide engineering services as well as research and development support to the Naval Research Laboratory’s information technology division under a potential five-year, $245 million contract awarded by the U.S. Navy in May.
The company said Tuesday it will work to support NRL-ITD across seven research areas that include artificial intelligence, data storage and computing, communications, security, networking, operational information technology and man-machine interfaces.
Mary Ann Hopkins, Parsons federal group president and an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2016, said the company will leverage its experience in the field of cybersecurity, information assurance and communications in order to support NRL through the contract.
Parsons is one of the eight companies that won positions on the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, multiple-award contract.
The company said it will perform work at NRL headquarters in Washington.
