AS Selected for EMS Work at APG
November 2008

As part of a contract to provide a broad range of environmental compliance services at the Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground, AS has been tasked to revitalize APG’s Environmental Management System consistent with the requirements of Executive Order 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management. APG is the Army’s oldest active proving ground and occupies more than 72,500 acres in northeastern Maryland adjacent to a sensitive ecosystem, the Chesapeake Bay. This work was awarded to AS in large part to our successful experience with similar work at other Army installations and federal agencies.

AS Sponsors Range Development and Operations Conferences
April 2008

In conjunction with the National Rifle Association, AS has become a sponsor of an ongoing series of conferences designed to educate range owners and operators, of both existing and proposed range facilities, in the fundamental aspects of developing and maintaining a shooting facility. These aspects include challenges associated with engineering, environmental, and safety-related issues. This information is vital for government agencies, as well as commercial, public, private, school, club, and casual ranges, both indoor and outdoor.

Besides sponsoring these conferences, AS employees Jon Kruft and Terry Yingling also participated in the training exercises at recent conferences in Orlando and Philadelphia. They shared lessons learned from our range operation, maintenance, and management experience with the U.S. Departments of Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security as well as state police agencies in Oregon and Delaware. Future RDOC conference dates can be found at

AS Assists Another Client in Winning Award
February 2008

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has selected Aberdeen Proving Ground as a regional finalist for the USFWS Military Conservation Partner Award for 2007. APG is being recognized for “their leadership and commitment to the USFWS and the greater public to protect our national symbol, the bald eagle. The partnership between the USFWS and APG began in the early 1980’s; since then, the number of bald eagle nesting territories have risen from one to an incredible 40 nesting pairs. APG’s contribution, in part, fulfilled a key recovery goal under which the USFWS was able to successfully remove protections under the Endangered Species Act.”

APG has been an important client of AS’ since 2002 and one of our employees, Amy Burgess, currently assists in managing APG’s Bald Eagle and Endangered Species Program. She was also instrumental in submitting the application for this award. APG will be receiving a Certificate of Recognition for their impressive conservation efforts at the National Military Fish and Wildlife Conference to be held in Phoenix in March.
