USA performs Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC) services to identify potential risks and develop appropriate response alternatives to reduce human risks associated with MEC and munitions constituents (MC).

By working within an accepted, consistent framework, we streamline project activities, make more consistent decisions, and develop necessary documentation to support those decisions.  USA focuses on reducing risks and hazards during all phases within the requirements of EPA's Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and Resource Conservation and Recover Act (RCRA).

USA has full capability to safely locate, identify, recover, evaluate, manage, and make final disposition of Material Potentially Presenting an Explosive Hazard (MPPEH), MEC, Munitions Debris (MD), and Range-Related Debris (RRD).  USA performs characterization and remediation of MEC, both inside and outside the continental United States, including Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, Guam, CNMI, Virgin Islands), South Korea, Italy, Japan, and Canada for U.S. government and private customers.

To support worldwide MEC response, USA maintains an extensive inventory of specialized equipment at our staffed 4,500-sq ft warehouse near our Corporate Office.  USA also uses a network of logistics providers who can rapidly and effectively deploy significant resources.

Our Munitions Response capabilities also include:

  • Safetly locate, identify, and charactgerize MEC on the ground surface, subsurface, and underwater
  • MEC clearance and removal
  • Disposal of MEC/MPPEH/MD/MDAS
  • MC Investigation & Remediation
  • Construction Support, as MEC Avoidance during horizontal/vertical construction, cultural, and biological surveys

Field Demolition Video

In this video, USA's UXO Technicians successfully perform a consolidated, continuous demolition shot.  The demo event used a flex linear shaped charge, combined with 350-millisecond delay detonators, to treat sixty 20-mm HEI projectiles.
