Fugro Pelagos Inc. (FPI) has successfully negotiated a contract with the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Mobile District to provide Surveying and Mapping Services in support of the Joint Airborne LIDAR Bathymetry Technical Center of Expertise (JALBTCX) Regional Coastal Mapping and Charting Program, as well as other USACE programs.

The Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract is for 3-years, and not-to-exceed $12,000,000.An initial Task Order for Airborne Hydrographic LIDAR operations along the North East coast of the U.S. has already begun. Future operations can include Fugro's SHOALS-1000T LIDAR system, topographic LIDAR, hyperspectral imaging and/or digital photogrammetry surveys along all U.S. coastlines, including Alaska, Hawaii, the Territories and Great Lakes areas. The initial award was a QBS (Qualifications Based Selection) process for these professional services.To more effectively support this contract and FPI's existing Airborne Hydrographic LIDAR support contract with the U.S Navy's Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO), the company has recently opened a permanent office in Kiln, Mississippi at the Stennis International Airport. This office will support ongoing FPI operations at the JALBTCX, as well as this new USACE contract. James Waddell III, FPI's new Manager of Hydrographic LIDAR Services - SE Division, will manage the office. Mr. Waddell served six years at NAVO in the Technical Staff of the Hydrographic Branch at Stennis Space Center, Mississippi, before retiring as a Lieutenant Commander. He previously had served 14 years in the Hydrographic Corps for NOAA and is an IHO Category - A Certified Hydrographer.
