Site Investigation Program Management, U.S. Air Force (USAF) Space Command
Akana was retained by a USAF prime contractor to provide technology evaluation, program management, administrative oversight, and technical reporting for a series of geophysical investigations within former U.S. Army artillery impact ranges at Vandenberg Air Force Base (AFB). Akana worked with the contractor to develop project goals, subcontractor procurement documents, and unexploded ordnance (UXO) detection technology evaluation criteria. We oversaw subcontractor performance, represented the team at weekly progress meetings with the base command structure, coordinated logistics with base users and Weapons Safety Office, and developed assessment documents for decision maker review and action. Where geophysical data indicated potential UXO presence, Akana oversaw intrusive investigation and documented findings.
