SRS provides safe, comprehensive Munitions Response Services (MRS) and Operational Range Clearance (ORC) to our federal and commercial customers worldwide. We often combine our MRS/ORC activities with environmental remediation for munitions residue and metals recycling for integrated, single-source, cost-effective services.

We implement MRS/ORC services using conventional technology and advanced digital geophysical mapping techniques tailored to meet individual customer needs with exceptional project delivery by qualified Project Managers, Senior UXO Supervisors, UXO Safety/QC Specialists, and trained UXO technicians who have safely conducted munitions-related services for over 30 years in the military and commercial worlds.

We also coordinate our MRS/ORC work to support ongoing site investigation and construction work where we collaborate to meet constrained and complicated schedules, adaptively using our field know-how to enhance overall safety and workflow to increase overall efficiency.
