The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Coastal & Hydraulics Laboratory (CHL) intends to award a contract on a sole source basis to Quality Positioning Services, Inc. upon the basis of the authority provided at FAR 13.106-1(b). ERDC's Coastal & Hydraulics Laboratory in Vicksburg, MS intends to purchase one (1) QINSY Navigation Q-suite that includes: QINSy 8, Multibeam/Laser Add-On Software, Qimera 1 FM Geocoder Toolbox Add-On, Qimera Midwater Add-on, TU Delft Sound Speed Inversion Add-On. These items are proprietary to QPS. QPS is the only source reasonably available to satisfy the Government's requirement because the items are proprietary to QPS. The USACE Field Research Facility surveying team currently uses QPS Fledermaus software products that are essential for surveying data processing workflow, which includes the ability to visualize 4D data, complete quality control of data, and export geospatial outputs. Acquiring QPS Qinsy for data acquisition and QPS Qimera for initial echosounder and Multibeam sonar data cleaning, quality control, and bathymetric terrain surface generation would enable a faster, more efficient workflow and better integration with existing software and related file formats. No other combined sonar data acquisition and cleaning/gridding product offers these benefits. Qinsy is the data collection component of the software suite and is compatible with all existing echosounder (Knudsen, CEESCOPE), Multibeam (Norbit), and lidar (Riegl, Velodyne) platforms used for surveying operations at the Field Research Facility. Interoperability is essential for rapid data collection operations and no other similar products will satisfy the Government's requirements. The associated North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 511210 Software Publishers, which has a size standard of $38.5M. This Notice of Intent is not a request for competitive quotations. However, interested parties may identify their interest and capability to respond to this requirement. Any interested party that believes they can fulfill this requirement should submit a capability statement to be reviewed. All submissions will be considered, however there is no guarantee that submissions in response to this notice will in any way alter the Government's acquisition strategy. Responses to this notice shall be submitted NLT 12:00 PM CST, 13 September 2019 to Lisa Bernard at e-mail: lisa.a.bernard@usace.army.mil. Telephone responses will not be accepted. Responses to this notice will not be considered as a response to any solicitation, a request to be added to a prospective offerors list, or to receive a copy of any solicitation. A determination by the Government not to compete the contract based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. Information received will be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement.
