AME provided professional services for planning and engineering of a new Underwater Electro-Magnetic Measurement System (UEMMS) at Naval Base Guam. The purpose of the project was to provide the US Navy with the capability to measure magnetic signatures and electric fields of submarines forward deployed and homeported at Naval Base Guam. The newly installed UEMMS would also facilitate future classes of submarine as well as facility upgrades as dictated by advances in magnetic silencing technology for a period of 20 years. AME staff performed project management, quality control, safety planning, above and underwater inspection, assessment, analysis, design, including drafting and development of specifications, construction-phase scheduling, and cost estimating. AME was responsible for subcontractor coordination, planning, quality control, and oversight. Further, AME incorporated Government-furnished design elements into a harmonized package.
