Government Services

C & C has many years of experience providing specialized services for government organizations both domestically and abroad.

C & C is at the leading edge of national and international government initiatives including Unmanned Semi-Submersible vehicle research programs for the US Navy, Hydrographic Charting for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), precise baseline surveys for Angolaís maritime boundary claim under the United Nations Convention of Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and Antarctic multibeam survey support for New Zealandís National Institute of Water and Atmosphere (NIWA). 

C & Cís government clients include:

US Army Corps of Engineers (COE)

Services provided by C & C for the COE include Hydrographic Charting, Debris Mapping, Static GPS Surveys, Sand Replenishment Surveys, Pre and Post Dredging Surveys, Vertical and Horizontal Control Surveys, Side Scan Sonar Surveys, Magnetometer Surveys, and Top-of-Rock (Subbottom Profiler) Surveys. C & C has worked for several COE Districts including Memphis, Vicksburg, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Mobile, New York, New Orleans, St. Louis, Wilmington, Savannah, and Galveston.

US Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO)

Projects performed by C & C for NAVOCEANO include Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) training and support and Unmanned Semi-Submersible research. C & C also provides C-Nav satellite hardware, software, and correction services for NAVOCEANOís fleet of ships and survey launches.

US Geological Survey (USGS)

C & C performed multibeam surveys for the USGS along the US West Coast, Gulf Coast, and around the Hawaiian Islands. Additional USGS projects include detailed mapping of Crater Lake and Lake Tahoe.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

Recently NOAA awarded C & C a third consecutive 5-year hydrographic survey contract to support the government's Nautical Charting Program. Hydrographic surveys are conducted to update US nautical charts and restore commerce following maritime incidents, hurricane disasters, and storm events.

Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ)

C & C performed high resolution multibeam mapping for DEQ and the USGS in Santa Monica Bay, California to identify and map dredge disposal sites. Dredge sites off the coast of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii were also mapped with high resolution multibeam bathymetry. 

National Park Service (NPS)

C & C provided high-resolution multibeam mapping of Crater Lake Oregon for the NPS and the USGS. Deliverables included high-resolution and geographically accurate bathymetric maps to support science related to Crater Lakeís aquatic biology, geochemistry, and volcanic processes.

Republic of Angola, West Africa

C & C surveyed and authenticated Angolaís coastal network of base points submitted to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). Sponsoring agencies included the Angolan Ministry of Justice, the Angolan Ministry of Transportation, the Angola Office of Geographic and Cadastral, the Hydrographic Institute of Angola, and the Angola Navy. This project involved occupying survey monuments with high-precision GPS at millimeter accuracy, establishing new monuments as required, and detailed analysis and reporting.

US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL)

For more than a decade, C & C has participated with NRL on a variety of projects involving multibeam sonar research, Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) research, Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) research, software development, data processing, and systems testing and evaluation.

National Institute of Water and Atmosphere (NIWA), New Zealand

Multibeam system integration, hydrographic data collection, data processing, and software development were provided to NIWA. This work supported scientific and Antarctic mapping programs and provided base maps for delineating New Zealandís UNCLOS claim. 

Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA)

A variety of survey contracts have been performed for CPRA including topographic, bathymetric, magnetometer, and geophysical data collection to support marsh nourishment following Hurricane Katrina. A unique CPRA project involved the identification, validation, and selection of data points used to design the new Mississippi River Small Scale Model. From a total of 3.4 billion data points assimilated, 1.3 billion points were selected and incorporated into the new Mississippi River model.

Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR)

C & C has provided survey services for the Louisiana DNR for over a decade. Services include Archaeological Investigations using side scan sonar, magnetometers, and subbottom profilers to map oyster beds, benthic habitats, and dredge disposal sites. The company has also performed a variety of borrow site hydrographic studies and topographic surveys to support DNRís Coastal Restoration and Marsh Creation Projects.

US Fish and Wildlife Service

Survey services and C-Nav DGPS positioning services are routinely provided for the US Fish and Wildlife Service. This work involves researching courthouse deeds and maps to identify ownership and tract limits, locating property per deeds, daily field computations, establishing survey control, reconnaissance surveys, boundary surveys, setting corners, marking line, marking property boundaries, and setting monument corners. Reporting includes legal description writing, delivering of survey reports, and developing survey plats.

Minerals Management Service (MMS)

C & C Technologies was the lead organization of a multifaceted Archaeological and Biological Investigation of Eight Deepwater Shipwreck Sites (Anona, Gulf Oil, Gulf Penn, Virginia, U-166, Robert E. Lee, Alcoa Puritan, and Halo). This multi-year, multi-vessel, multi-disciplinary biological, cultural, and archeological program involved researchers from a variety of academic institutions and research foundations. Participating government agencies included the US Department of the Interior, the Minerals Management Service, the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration, and the National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP). Project performance included Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) operations (with precise positioning and navigation), Autonomous Under Vehicle (AUV) data collection and interpretation, and biological sampling.

Bureau of Ocean Energy Management & Bureau of Safety, Environment, and Enforcement (BOEM & BSEE)

C & C was contracted by BOEM and BSEE to collect geophysical data with Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) over several known historic wrecks in the Gulf of Mexico. Data collected included multibeam bathymetry, side scan sonar, subbottom profiler, laser micro bathymetry, camera photo mosaics, and a variety of geochemical sensors.

US Coast Guard (USCG)

In conjunction with NOAA, C & C performed a variety of hurricane debris surveys to identify and mark hazards to navigation prior to their removal under Coast Guard contracts. C & C additionally provided survey services to the USCG to re-establish range markers for maritime navigation.

Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries

C & C has performed numerous boundary surveys to establish track ownership borders at National Wildlife Refuges in Louisiana and Texas. Additional work involved ground truthing, dredge sampling (water bottom and oyster sampling), side scan sonar data collection, diver sampling; and creating sonar data mosaics, AutoCAD maps, and summary reports.
