DOI RFQ: US Geological Survey Advanced National Seismic System Support and Development

Solicitation: 140G0320Q0059

“The U.S. Geological Survey, USGS Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) is designed to organize, modernize, and standardize operations of seismic networks in the United States to improve the Nation’s ability to respond effectively to damaging earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis. This national seismic network of thousands of seismic stations makes it possible to 1) provide emergency response personnel with real-time earthquake information, 2) provide engineers with information about building and site response, and 3) provide scientists with high-quality data to understand earthquake processes and solid earth structure and dynamics. The contractor shall provide services to support software products that are used by the USGS ANSS in the delivery and processing of earthquake information.”

“The contractor shall support the software products used by the USGS ANSS for earthquake monitoring and data product distribution on an as-needed basis when notified by the Contract Technical Liaison. Support may include training and assisting members of the ANSS to install, configure, and operate the applications listed below; troubleshooting, identifying, and correcting problems or errors; adding features or enhancements; and updating products. The products to be supported and/or enhanced include, but are not limited to:

ANSS Quake Monitoring System (AQMS) processes waveform data from seismic networks in real-time to compute earthquake locations, magnitudes, mechanisms, ShakeMaps, and finite-fault solutions. It provides the capability of rapid review for duty seismologists, routine post-processing of earthquakes by analysts, notification of significant events and system status, and near-real-time product archiving. The USGS requires the contractor to maintain, modify, enhance, document, and distribute software; reduce operational costs by modifying AQMS to use open-source database software and Linux operating systems; manage the SVN software repository; manage configuration and operation of AQMS software, install software updates, and administer databases; manage preparation, maintenance, and loading of current and historic station metadata, parametric and waveform data into AQMS database; and support its use at ANSS regional networks.

Earthworm is a seismic waveform acquisition, processing, and earthquake reporting system used at over a dozen ANSS regional seismic networks. It is an essential component of AQMS. The USGS requires the contractor to maintain and enhance software, create software distributions, and support its use at ANSS regional networks. Locations include…”

This is a 100% small business set aside.
