Project Overview

Unclassified Waste Radioactive Waste Brokering at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD

SIA provided Radiological Waste Brokering Services for a large and diverse inventory of Low-Level Radioactive Waste (LLRW) stored at an Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) facility. Examples of radioactive materials included in the inventory are: various instruments and articles, sources, liquid scintillation counter (LSC) standards, laboratory trash, surface contaminated objects, trailer-mounted foreign height finders, and intermodal containers of depleted uranium (DU) range waste.

This project is a great example of how SIA was able to take a large, complex inventory of waste and use our depth of Radiological Waste Brokering knowledge, long-term contacts in the industry, and experience in problem-solving to provide a solution that was efficient, cost effective, and met the Government’s disposal needs.

Resource Efficiency Management Services for the Air National Guard

SIA provides resource energy management (REM) services to support ANG CETSC and over 100 ANG Bases to support renewable energy, energy resiliency, and efficiency projects. Services focus on program management and reporting, reduction of energy costs, consumption, intensity, and demand at its facilities.

SIA’s energy managers provide analyses, consultation, and recommendations to improve energy efficiency, including estimates of cost analysis of savings, onsite inspections and audits of current operations, equipment, and energy purchase patterns providing project development and execution. Additionally, the energy managers calculated and supported measurement and verification reporting of completed energy projects and initiatives.

The energy managers evaluated base operations and maintenance for energy efficiency and identification of possible improvements; conducted energy audits including periodic Installation Energy audits meeting requirements of EISA 432; and assisted with review of audit reports and development of ANG audit policy and/or best practices. They also analyzed meter data, develop usage profiles and guidance, evaluated utility rate structure for reasonableness and appropriateness, and investigated and recommended Peak Demand initiatives to reduced demand charges.

Architect/Engineer (A/E) Design Services for the Department of Energy

SIA provided preliminary and detailed Architect/Engineer (A/E) design services for the incoming electrical gear (Substation 6) for the R&D Plateau, located at the Department of Energy-National Energy Technology Laboratory (DOE-NETL) campus in Pittsburgh, PA.

SIA provided A&E Services to DOE-NETL in the management and oversight of two projects at their Pittsburgh, PA campus. Both projects involved preliminary and detailed design services that include the replacement of the 920 Plateau Load Interrupter Switch with a new switch, along with the replacement of the R&D Plateau main electrical switch (Substation-6) with new equipment with enhanced reliability and life span.

Project Overview

Radiological Response at Marine Corps Air Station, Iwakuni, Japan

As a result of the Fukushima reactor incident, U.S. Marine Corps MH-53 helicopters stationed at MCAS Iwakuni near Hiroshima, Japan – along with their spare parts inventories – were contaminated with radiological fallout. The radiological elements that created the contamination are cesium-134 (Cs134) and cesium-137 (Cs137).

The U.S. Army Joint Munitions Command (JMC), the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) at Patuxent River, MD, and the NAVSEA 04 Radiological Controls Department requested SIA to provide senior radiation expertise and services to support the Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron (MALS-12) and the Program Management Aviation (PMA- 261). The SIA subject matter experts provided radiological oversight and support for the preparation of the area, radiological surveys, disassembly, removal of equipment, preparing, packing, and manifesting shipments of Fukushima radiologically contaminated materials, and final clearance surveys of the complete airframes of four MH-53 helicopters.

Robotics Mat Sinking Technology Development for the US Army Corps of Engineers

SIA is leading a team of cross-functional engineering experts to design, build and test an automated, articulated concrete mat sinking prototype for application on a barge in support of the United States Corps of Engineers (USACE) mission to maintain navigational waterways critical to U.S. national security. The team includes: the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC), Bristol Harbor Group, Inc, and the American Bureau of Shipping Group, Inc. SIA is performing a key integrating role to provide proof of concept and testing of a land-based prototype. Following prototype testing, SIA will manufacture, install, and commission a full-scale robotic system on a newly constructed USACE barge.  The USACE, Marine Design Center (MDC) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is providing the Contracting Officer’s Representative and technical oversight responsibilities for the project and is supported by the USACE District in Vicksburg, Mississippi; Memphis, who is the leading entity for financial support of this project.

Project Overview

IT Study for the National Park Service

The National Park Service Outer Banks Group is composed of three geographically separated parks with high visitor volume in an ecologically sensitive environment along 90 miles of North Carolina’s pristine, ever-changing coastline. Following years of workarounds on their outdated IT system, they experienced dragging network speeds, inability to properly backup data, ineffective communication lines, and countless personnel hours to troubleshoot or manually resolve issues. SIA created an implementation plan that included a full network design from inter-site fiber optic installation to interior room schematics and equipment specifications and costs. We provided financial strategies, risk management, system redundancy measures, and service provider options; as well as independent construction considerations, adherence to applicable engineering standards, construction and permitting requirements, and GIS mapping. The proposed system’s construction and deployment are a low impact on the parks’ natural environment and include the capability to support future bandwidths and anticipated upgrades.
