Military aircraft assessment experts

Jump to navigation
Cardno is the only contractor to complete the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process for F-35 basing actions for all 3 services (US Air Force, US Navy, and US Marine Corps) as well as the US Air National Guard.

Our military aircraft assessment experience is vast, from basing KC-46 and MQ-9 squadrons to realignments and basing of V-22 aircraft in the U.S. and Japan. We have assisted in establishing new and reconfigured special use airspace for the PRTC, White Elk MOA, Montana ANG Air-to-Ground Training Range, Adirondack Training Range Complex, and low-level routes for C-130 training at Little Rock AFB. 

We are industry-recognized innovators with expertise in critical aspects of military aircraft-focused NEPA documentation. Cardno has managed the environmental review process for ten out of the twelve DoD F-35 basing actions in the U.S. and the Pacific.

Since 1992, Cardno has continued as a primary US Department of Defense (DoD) NEPA contractor, completing 120 Environmental Impact Statements and 500+ Environmental Assessments for DoD actions worldwide.
