STS International in Berkeley Springs, WV won a $23.3 million cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for operational capabilities for the surface and subsurface surveillance system (Quad-S). Quad S is a multifunction surveillance system that can be used in both military expeditionary operations and homeland security missions. STS will perform the work in Tampa, FL and expects to complete it by September 2014. This contract was competitively procured via Navy Electronic Commerce Online and FedBizOpps websites, with 3 proposals received by the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NAVSEA) Panama City Division in Florida (N61331-09-C-0020). Quad-S integrates a range of maritime sensors… Quad-S is a mobile, rapidly deployable, nonconventional, surveillance system that, through integration of underwater, surface, and land-side maritime sensor/imaging systems, will provide for surface vessel tracking systems; marine radar systems for locating and identifying unexpected approaching watercraft; underwater systems for the detection of swimmers; and acoustic systems for the scanning of docks and ship hulls for underwater improvised explosive device detection.
