Parsons has been selected to provide border security services to Lebanon and Georgia under two task orders from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.
The company will implement systems to identify and deter weapons of mass destruction along the clients’ borders as part of Cooperative Threat Reduction Integrating Contract II, Parsons said Monday.
“We look forward to our continued collaboration with DTRA to make the world safer by reducing the threat posed by weapons of mass destruction,” said Mary Ann Hopkins, Parsons group president.
Parsons will work to integrate the surveillance network of Lebanon's 233-mile border with Syria and provide training to the customer.
The second task order calls for equipment delivery, integration, training, construction of border facilities and sustainment services along Georgia’s border with Armenia.
DTRA’s Cooperative Threat Reduction Program aims to curb the spread of WMD materials and systems from former Soviet Union states.
