      Some of Parsons’ defense work

      One of our largest programs in the defense portfolio is the Missile Defense Agency Engineering Services Support (MiDAESS) contract. We have been supporting the MDA for 35 years by providing key technical leadership in the design, development, fielding, and sustainment of an effective, and integrated Ballistic Missile Defense System.  Today on MiDAESS, we play a leading role support the MDA in engineering, facilities, test and evaluation, warfighter operations, logistics, security, intelligence, and international missions.
