URS serves national governments around the world. In the United States, we provide engineering services and critical technical support to virtually every federal agency, including the Departments of Defense, Energy, State and Homeland Security, as well as NASA, the Intelligence Community and the Environmental Protection Agency. Outside of the U.S., we also serve the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, as well as defense agencies in the United Kingdom and Australia.
URS develops and modernizes weapons systems, refurbishes military vehicles and aircraft, and provides flight training to U.S. and NATO armed forces. We also manage and operate specialized government installations, including military bases and test ranges, and provide mission-focused institutional support for facilities such as NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. We provide logistics support for military operations, conduct homeland security exercises, and provide disaster response services on behalf of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In addition, we manage several National Research Laboratories for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
To help our federal customers reduce costs and improve operating efficiencies, URS provides sophisticated information technology services. Our core capabilities include secure cloud computing, integrated cyber security, software and systems engineering, and enterprise-wide risk management.
The Company also is a leader in global threat reduction programs, which eliminate nuclear, chemical, biological, and conventional weapons around the world. In fact, we have helped clean up more of the Cold War’s chemical and radioactive legacy than any other company. As the largest environmental management contractor to the U.S. Department of Energy, URS manages the cleanup of radioactive waste at former nuclear production sites. In the United Kingdom, a URS-led consortium manages the operations and cleanup of the Sellafield nuclear complex, one of the world’s largest nuclear sites, for the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.
At existing government installations, URS plans, designs and constructs aircraft hangars, barracks and hospitals. We provide engineering and environmental support for flood control programs and manage multiphase remediation and environmental restoration programs at military facilities in the United Kingdom, Germany, and the United States. We also offer the full range of services for the decommissioning and redevelopment of former military bases.
