Federal Engineering understands the unique requirements of power and water utilities.  We know that communications systems provide a vital lifeline in today’s utilities including dispatching service crews, ensuring personnel safety, interconnecting SCADA subsystems, enabling emerging technologies such as Smart Grid, and protecting our nuclear plants and water supplies from terrorist attack.
