Parsons (NYSE:PSN) has wrapped up its $300M acquisition of Braxton Science & Technology Group in a move to expand technology offerings for the space, intelligence and cyber sectors.

Centreville, Virginia-based Parsons said Thursday the deal marks its fourth acquisition over the past two years and is part of an investment strategy to access intellectual property within the defense and intelligence markets.

Colorado Springs, Colorado-based BSTG has helped Department of Defense and intelligence community customers manage spacecraft and antenna simulation, ground infrastructure automation and satellite operations.
