The company said Thursday the contract covers all phases of systems engineering for six MDA weapons systems.

“Parsons has been proud to provide technical, engineering, analysis, and modeling and simulation support to the MDA and its predecessors for nearly four decades,” said Mary Ann Hopkins, Parsons group president.

“We are particularly pleased to be awarded this new contract and look forward to continuing our support of the agency's mission to defend the United States and our allies against missile threats,” Hopkins added.
