Continental Mapping, a leading geospatial technology and automation provider, has been selected by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District to provide nationwide disaster response mapping. The five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract will provide both the Corps of Engineers and FEMA with rapid response aerial roof measurements and analytics to support temporary roof repairs following disasters such as hurricanes and tornados.
The ACI Temporary Roof Repairs program, dubbed the Blue Roof program because of the blue tarps used in temporary repairs, relies on geospatial data and analysis to determine necessary resources to order, deliver, and distribute aid in disaster affected areas. This award recognizes Continental Mapping’s ability to quickly mobilize, scale, and produce actionable geospatial information post-disaster. At maximum capacity, Continental Mapping will produce up to 1,000 roof reports per day.
Chief Executive Officer Dave Hart said, “We are excited to support the US Army Corps of Engineers and FEMA in this critical program. Our firm has long provided nationwide surveying and mapping services in support of resiliency planning and natural disaster mitigation. This contract allows us to contribute more deeply to our nation’s disaster response and recovery needs by providing timely, comprehensive mapping services.”
Continental Mapping supports the global and domestic missions of the US Army Corps of Engineers and other Federal agencies, including the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, through numerous prime contracts.
