For example, as part of our operations and maintenance services for specialized government installations, URS provides mission-focused institutional support to the research and daily operations of NASA’s facilities at Kennedy Space Center and Marshall Space Flight Center. We also manage operations at the DOD’s National Radar Cross-Section Test Facility.
URS modernizes weapons systems, refurbishes military vehicles and aircraft, trains pilots and manages military and government facilities. In addition, we plan, design and construct hangars, and government buildings, provide logistics support for military operations and help decommission former bases for redevelopment.
The Company also is a leader in global threat reduction programs, which eliminate nuclear, chemical, biological and conventional weapons around the world. We have helped clean up more of the Cold War’s chemical and radioactive legacy than any other company.
For the Department of Energy, we manage complex programs and facilities—including national laboratories—and our specialized expertise in all aspects of nuclear safety provides operational, consulting and project support services to government and business clients around the world.
In Europe, we manage one of the world’s most complex nuclear waste cleanups for the United Kingdom Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, in Australia we provide environmental services to the Department of Defence as well as other national agencies and in Panama we helped permit the expansion of the Panama Canal for the Panama Canal Authority.
