Fugro has been awarded a five-year indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for the provision of shoreline mapping services in support of the agency’s Coastal Mapping Program.

Issued through the NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey (NGS), the contract calls for aerial imagery, topobathymetric LIDAR, and shoreline feature compilation. The NGS will use the data to update NOAA nautical charts, define US territorial limits, support coastal management activities, and perform inundation modeling.

Work under the contract has already begun and will run until March 20, 2025.

Fugro is one of four contractors that will receive task orders under the programme. The total maximum value of work to be shared among all contractors is US$40 million.
