R3 awarded EODESU-1 maintenance contract

R3 was awarded a five-year prime contract through Fleet Logistics Center, Norfolk, VA to support the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Expeditionary Support Unit ONE (EODESU-1) Dive Locker Mk-16 SCUBA Maintenance Services.

Our support will perform the maintenance of critical (DLSS) equipment at EODESU-1 Diving Division and provide scheduled and corrective maintenance on eighty-six (86) MK-16 underwater breathing apparatus (UBA) and one hundred twenty (120) SCUBA dive rigs.

EODESU-1 personnel have provided global EOD support which has impacted the unit’s ability to meet individual and detachment training. Extended, accelerated, and unplanned deployments continue to create urgent requirements in individual and detachment pre-deployment training schedules that are already competing for limited resources.

R3 will provide training and expertise to individuals and detachments in the operation and maintenance of portable and installed High Pressure Air (HPA) systems, HPA storage and delivery systems and certify personnel in the use of the Poseidon Regulator.
