Mission Support Alliance (MSA)


Dana Engineering provided high quality Architect/Engineer infrastructure and utility design services to MSA for site-wide support, utilizing highly experienced registered professional engineers and designers. Tasks successfully completed include preparation of: Facility modification packages; Design change notices; Calculations and engineering analysis; Engineering specifications and studies; on-going preparation of functional design requirements; Preparation of engineering CAD drawings; and As-built verifications. Work was conducted in strict accordance with MSA procedures. Assigned registered professional engineers and junior personnel have experience in the following areas:
  • road designs
  • pipelines
  • telecommunications systems
  • fire protection
  • electrical and lighting studies
  • control systems
  • sewer systems
  • roof inspections
  • civil/structural evaluations
  • water systems
  • pumping systems
  • general plant systems engineering and maintenance


Dana Engineering provided senior management, instructors, and contract personnel to the DOE Hazardous Materials Management and Emergency Response (HAMMER) Training Center operated by MSA. Dana Engineering specialists were key to the design and implementation of the Beryllium hazardous materials training program for Hanford site and for Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Then training program included the establishment of a Training Team, with project sponsorship from DOE-RL and the Hanford contractors. Dana Engineering developed senior radiological control course curriculum and instructors. Dana Engineering management led the team which consisted of Hammer Training management and staff, contractor training managers, contractor training points-of-contact and training coordinators, Bargaining Unit representatives, safety representatives and representatives from training service providers.


Dana Engineering provided civil and mechanical engineering for design of a long range moving target system for the Hanford Patrol firing range. Conceptual design through detailed design review workshops were conducted between Dana Engineering and MSA to ensure the requested moving target functionality is achieved to ensure the end system's capabilities meet the Hanford Patrol Training Academy operational training requirements. The Moving Target System is mounted on a small rail car that allows the targeting system to be remotely controlled as it moves back and forth, while the target pops-up from below grade level for Hanford Patrol training firing range practice.
