Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) announced today that the company has been awarded a $63 million, firm-fixed-price contract modification to its Recovery of Airbase Denied by Ordnance (RADBO) production contract by the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center. This modification brings the total number of Air Force RADBO systems to 29.

The RADBO system, which includes Parsons' ZEUS® directed energy system, provides explosive ordnance personnel improved safety by allowing the destruction of unexploded ordnance from the interior of Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles at distances that can exceed 300 meters in optimal conditions. The system was recently used operationally at the trilateral joint exercise Cope North 24 in the Indo-Pacific region, where it demonstrated 100 percent effectiveness and successful mission accomplishment of rapid airfield clearance after an attack. The system’s history underscores its precision at the speed of light, having neutralized more than 4,000 ordnance items with an effectiveness rate of over 99 percent. Versions of ZEUS® have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan for area, route clearance missions, and IED neutralization.

“The RADBO system continues to lead a shift in operational tactics and response to protect deployed warfighters and civilians and ensure their mission success,” said Mike Kushin, president of Defense and Intelligence for Parsons. “The Air Force’s continued trust in our team to deliver this lifesaving technology is something we’re proud of and will further bolster the warfighter’s advantage, improve rapid recovery of assets, and enhance force portability.”

The Parsons-developed ZEUS® directed energy system is a 3kW continuous-fire laser designed, developed, and tested for use in operational theater. ZEUS® allows for the precise detonation of small submunitions, cluster bombs, land mines, general-purpose bombs, and thick-cased artillery shells. It is also agile enough for post-combat applications, including humanitarian landmine clearing, route clearing, and airbase clearing.
