Research & Development Services Division



The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Research & Development Services Division (RDSD) is responsible for facilities and infrastructure at NRL's main site in Washington, D.C. and at NRL field sites. These responsibilities include military construction, engineering, facility support services, planning, maintenance/repair/operation of all infrastructure systems, and transportation. RDSD also provides engineering and technical assistance to research divisions in support of the installation and operation of critical research equipment.

The mission of the Navy's Environment Program is to ensure the ability of the Navy to operate effectively in an environmentally responsible manner. NRL's environmental program is managed under an Environmental Management System (EMS). An EMS is a formal management framework that provides a systematic way to integrate environmental considerations into day-to-day activities across all levels and functions of NRL.
