The Naval Facilities Engineering Command Pacific is conducting market
research to identify

Northwest, Gulf of Alaska, Japan, Okinawa, and Atlantic Ocean training
areas. All qualified and
experienced contractors, non-profit organizations, and academic
institutions are encouraged to
respond. Each particular operational area/range has specific baseline
and monitoring needs
depending on the current level of knowledge and data availability.
Monitoring plan implementation
and research studies are anticipated to include aerial and small vessel
surveys, passive acoustics

and behavioral studies.
Monitoring may be implemented before, during, and after Navy training
exercises. The candidate

concurrent field studies in
several geographical areas; and perform program administration,

of, but not be limited to,
coordination with Navy representatives on monitoring of training
exercises, selection and oversight
of field researchers in several geographical areas, analysis of field
data, consolidation of field data
to meet overall program goals, and preparation of monthly and annual
