Team eyes opportunities in the expanding space market
Parsons Corporation and Adaptive Launch Solutions (ALS) have established a strategic partnership for launch and space system engineering, operations, and integration opportunities with the US government and commercial customers.
Parsons and ALS are both on the US Space Force Launch Manifest Systems Integrator (LMSI) program, with Parsons serving as the prime contractor. The Parsons and ALS team successfully completed the first launch as part of the LMSI program in August 2019. The second launch is scheduled for March 2020.
“The combination of Parsons and ALS will continue unlocking the potential of the space domain for our customers,” said Aarish Gokaldas, executive vice president of the Parsons Space and Geospatial Solutions market. “The team’s scalable, end-to-end launch operations will optimize the space mission, from planning to hardware solutions and payload integration, and finally to separation in orbit, resulting in more options and simpler launch vehicle systems interfaces.”
Parsons has more than 60 years of experience supporting US Air Force and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) launch operations, space domain awareness, data analytics, and payload development and integration.
