TheNaval Facilities EngineeringCommand (NAVFAC) Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (EXWC) has awarded a $15 million contract to Sound and Sea Technology Inc (SST) to integrate and install an underwater cable system in support of the seismo-hydroacoustic data acquisition system (SHDAS). Under the contract, SST will perform engineering tasks including installation of the system and shore landing. SST president Judith Meggitt remarked: “This contract award is the result of many years of successful support for NAVFAC EXWC and proven performance. Our team of ocean engineering professionals has years

of experience installing seafloor systems. It is gratifying to be awarded this task order for a critical national system.” SST’s project manager, Michael Harrison, commented: “Seafloor cables are a core business for SST. This is the latest in a series of successful seafloor system projects, and we look forward to supporting this project further.” SST has participated in numerous other complex ocean cable system projects for the US navy, and for this program in particular.
