PARSONS selected by MARINE CORPS to support military operations in urban terrain (MOUT) training systems


PASADENA, CA . – Parsons announced today that it was selected by the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command to provide engineering analysis, design, fabrication, and installation of MOUT training systems. These training systems will allow Marines to practice deployment and maneuvers in an urban setting. The realistic urban environments will include streets, houses, industrial zones, and utilities where Marine units will master the challenges of urban navigation, movement, target acquisition and engagement, and cross-boundary coordination.

“Parsons is extraordinarily proud to be chosen to support the Marine Corps’ mission to create training environments that meet 21st century challenges,” said Tom Roell, Parsons Group President. “Parsons has been providing range planning, engineering, design, and environmental services for our military’s training ranges worldwide, and we are committed to the MOUT mission’s success.”

“Our primary teaming partner on this project is Allied Container Systems Inc. (ACS),” said Dan Gilbert, Parsons’ MOUT project manager. “The Parsons/ACS team has the right experience to support MOUT,” adds Gilbert. “Parsons’ excellence in program management, coupled with ACS’ leading position in providing MOUT systems to the U.S. military, makes the Parsons/ACS team the ideal provider for these training systems.”
