Janus Global Operations Selected for US Army Munitions Services Contract
Janus Global Operations, a subsidiary of Caliburn International, has secured a spot on the U.S. Army’s $240 million multiple-award military munitions services task order.
The MAMMS III contract requires the company to help the Army Corps of Engineers mitigate potentially hazardous munitions at current and formerly used defense and federally controlled/owned sites, as well as in surrounding areas.
According to the Department of Defense, work will be completed in 2028, Caliburn said Thursday.
In a statement, David Bell, Caliburn’s vice president of munitions and environmental remediation, expressed commitment to supporting USACE and the Military Munitions Response Program.
The DOD launched MMRP in 2001 to initiate cleanups at military sites that have suspected or known munition hazards. The program addresses concerns like explosive safety, discarded military munitions, munitions constituents and environmental and health hazards from releases of unexploded ordnance.
Caliburn is a commercial munitions management company headquartered in Washington, D.C. It offers a wide range of services such as munitions and explosives management, international mine action standards demining, military munitions construction support and detection of unexploded ordnance and explosive remnants of war.
The awarding of the task order expands Caliburn’s partnership with USACE. Previously, the company completed a five-year ordnance clearance effort at 62 former U.S.-operated ranges in Afghanistan.
The cleanup mission involved the removal of unexploded ordnance and ammunition, which prevented insurgents from reusing them for improvised explosive devices and led to improved civilian safety.
