HDR Wins $75M Marine Species Monitoring IDIQ from US Navy

research-and-development-RDHDR Environmental, Operations, and Constructions Inc. has won a $75 million contract from the U.S. Navy to handle marine species monitoring studies for the naval facilities engineering command in Atlantic and Pacific areas.

The Norfolk, Virginia-based company will work to survey aerial and ship board, perform passive acoustics, identify images, collect biopsy samples and conduct behavioral research, the Defense Department said Friday.

Work is set to take place in the Navy’s training and testing areas in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and Pacific Ocean through April 2020.

HDR will perform the tasks on protected species and habitat as mandated by the Endangered Species Act, Marine Mammal Protection Act, Magnuson-Stevens Act and other related regulations.

The company also will implement the monitoring program either in collaboration with the Navy, as standalone research or as continuing data collection.
