Parsons has secured a $1.1bn multiple award task order contract (MATOC) from the US Corps of Engineers (USACE).

The potential ten-year order will support USACE Huntsville in meeting challenges related to environmental and munitions responses.

The chemical, environmental and munitions response unrestricted (ChEM-RU) contract supports Military Munitions Response (MMR) programme responses.

Involving conventional munitions, chemical warfare materiel, environmental compliance, and remediation services, the MMR programme is intended to safeguard the environment and the public.

Parsons engineered systems president Jon Moretta said: “For more than 20 years, Parsons has partnered with USACE Huntsville in the identification and recovery of munitions.

“We are committed to bringing the latest technologies to safely and efficiently deliver on their environmental remediation and munitions response needs.”

Leveraging its expertise across environmental and technology markets, the company plans to deploy a suite of advanced solutions to remediate munitions, explosives of concern (MEC), and hazardous, toxic, and radioactive waste (HTRW) across existing and former defence locations.

Geophysical classification, digital geophysical mapping, robotic munitions recovery, innovative drone applications, as well as underwater munitions identification and recovery are particular capabilities that the company intends to deploy.

In March last year, Parsons secured a position on a utility monitoring and control systems (UMCS V) contract through the US Army Corps of Engineers Engineering and Support Center.
