R3 awarded five-year contract with Underwater Construction Team TWO

R3 was awarded a five-year contract with Underwater Construction Team TWO and will provide training and dive manager administrative support at Naval Base Ventura County in Port Hueneme, CA.  UCT TWO provides a capability for construction, inspection, repair, and maintenance of ocean facilities in support of Naval and Marine Corps operations, to include repair of battle damage.  The unit maintains a capability to support a Fleet Marine Force amphibious assault, subsequent combat service support ashore, and self-defense for their camp and facilities under construction.

Since its establishment in 1973, UCT TWO has deployed to every naval installation in the Pacific, as well as several sites in the Atlantic, the Arctic, and the Antarctic.  The Team currently deploys three 15-member air detachments on a 6/12-month deployment/homeport cycle.  One deploys for six months, while one is in a six-month maintenance cycle, and the third is in a six-month training cycle to prepare for its upcoming deployment.  UCT TWO is the only Naval Construction Force unit to utilize this deployment cycle to maintain year-round availability.  R3 is pleased to continue our diving-related support across the Navy Expeditionary Combat Command enterprise in this support to UCT TWO.
