Munitions Response & Removal

APTIM brings unrivaled expertise in safely locating and removing dangerous munitions from former military sites to restore land for productive reuse.

Our clients face several key challenges when trying to remediate munitions and explosives from former military sites. First, detecting and precisely locating buried ordnance over large areas can be difficult and expensive with current technologies. Second, safely removing and disposing of decades-old explosives that may be unstable poses serious risks for workers and surrounding communities. Finally, remediation projects require complex coordination between government oversight agencies, contractors, local stakeholders, and other groups to ensure work progresses smoothly according to regulations.
