STS team at the 14th Biannual Nuclear Triad and Advanced Conventional Strike Symposium – NSWC Crane

Uncategorized

STS joined industry leaders in strategic nuclear modernization for the 14th Biannual Nuclear Triad and Advanced Conventional Strike Symposium at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane (NSWC Crane) in Odon, IN.

Discussions generated from DoD and industry leaders included plans to modernize US systems through cost effective collaborative solutions for the U.S. nuclear deterrent and strategies to ensure best practices are incorporated into every facet of the program.

STS currently provides support to several divisions at NSWC Crane, including:

  • Systems engineering support to enable the Strategic Missions Systems Engineering Division (GXT) in its role as an independent government agent, to increase program efficiencies and reduce risk in Navy Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) System Integration and Coordination activities
  • Support to the Platform and Launch Systems Division (GXP) through engineering and technical investigations on various equipment for programs supported by GXP such as the Strategic Systems Program (SSP) Intra-Facility Transportation Equipment (IFTE), Trident I (C4) and Trident II (D5) submarine based Missile Test and Readiness Equipment, Ohio and Ohio Replacement Program (ORP), Advanced Launcher Development Program (ALDP) support equipment; and
  • Engineering, technical and program management support services in support of the Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs (SSP), including development of a Lifecycle Management Tool (LMT), which evolved into the “Common Strategic Electronic Parts Program” (CSEPP)

Nsite develops and delivers FDA’s first mobile application

Uncategorized

Today, HHS’ Food and Drug Administration launched their first mobile application – the “Drug Shortages” app, now available for both iOS and Android devices. The app allows users to browse and sign-up to receive real-time updates on information regarding drug shortages, as well as report drug shortages to the FDA. Search features also allow users to explore the data via a drug name, category, and active ingredients. This application was developed to improve access to information about drug shortages, as part of the FDA’s goals established in the Strategic Plan for Preventing and Mitigating Drug Shortages.

To install the app, choose the link for your device:

HHS launches new web-based Procurement Forecast tool

Uncategorized

Health and Human Service’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization’s new web-based procurement tool is now live and can be accessed at http://procurementforecast.hhs.gov/. Nsite designed and developed the “Procurement Forecast Data Repository” (PFDR) in collaboration with HHS stakeholders to deliver a fully- customized solution, inclusive of 508-accessibility and single sign-on for HHS users.

The web-based tool will allow HHS’ 11 operational divisions to capture forecasted opportunities in a consolidated, customizable repository and facilitate vendor’s access to potential procurements. The PFDR is consistent with HHS’s strategic Enterprise Architecture (EA) policies, guidelines and IT infrastructure.

STS on winning team for Conventional Prompt Strike Contract

STS is a partner on the winning team for the hypersonics program under the Office of the Secretary Defense. STS will provide engineering support and other SME in support of the CPS program specifically to the U.S. Navy’s SSP office.

The CPS Program at SSP is
developing a non-nuclear hypersonic weapon system. This Navy-designed,
-developed, and -produced hypersonic missile will enable precise and
timely strike capability in contested environments.

Hypersonic weapons – capable of flying at speeds greater than
five times the speed of sound (Mach 5) – are highly maneuverable and
operate at varying altitudes, providing the warfighter with an ability
to strike targets hundreds and even thousands of miles away, in a matter
of minutes.

The Navy CPS-developed common hypersonic missile is composed of a
hypersonic glide body that travels to target at hypersonic speed and
booster that launches the glide body into initial flight. The missile
will be fielded by both Navy and Army, which will each develop
service-specific weapon systems and launchers tailored for use from land
and sea.

STS Joins the C5 OTA Consortium

C5 OTA: C5 is a consortium composed of leading companies and institutions in the C4ISR and cyber technology sectors. C5 accelerates the development and deployment of new capabilities to the Warfighter through the use of Other Transaction Authority. C5 gives members an innovative and commonsense acquisition mechanism for development of new technologies and products to meet government customer requirements. The Office of the Secretary of Defense requested that the Army establish a new OTA to address C4ISR and cyber-technology requirements. In response, C5 was formed. Based upon the simplicity and transparency of its business model, C5 was awarded an initial three-year, OTA with the Army in July 2014, and a 10-year, no-ceiling, follow-on OTA in April 2017. In April 2018, the Marine Corps Systems Command signed a 5-year no-ceiling agreement with C5 for the use of OTA.

STS joins the consortium providing support via the NSTXL Consortium

As a member of NSTXL, STS has access to two additional avenues to provide access for their customers – the S2MARTS and TReX OTAs.

The Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Crane Division and the Department of Defense (DoD) created the Strategic and Spectrum Missions Advanced Resilient Trusted Systems (S2MARTS) OTA. The S2MARTS OTA (pronounced “SMARTS”) is designed to refine strategies, management planning activities, and implement integrated, complementary solutions that enable broader Department of Defense (DoD) access to commercial state-of-the-art EMS technologies, advanced microelectronics, radiation-hardened (RAD-HARD) and strategic missions hardware (HW).

The Training and Readiness Accelerator (TReX) expedites development, demonstration, and delivery of prototypes to increase Warfighter readiness. With a focus on modeling, simulation, and training, TReX provides the United States Government with an agile mechanism to iterate and refine critical technologies to keep pace with ongoing and emerging challenges. By actively incorporating structured operational user feedback, TReX will identify and develop innovative solutions to inform materiel procurement requirements and acquisition.

STS launches their fourth mobile application developed for the FDA

Uncategorized

STS designed and developed the Drugs@FDA Express mobile application for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. On this mobile app, the public can search for information about FDA-approved brand and generic prescription and over-the-counter human drugs and biological therapeutic products. The FDA currently operates the Drugs@FDA webpage, which includes information about drug products approved by the agency, including patient information, drug labeling, approval letters, reviews and other information. The Drugs@FDA Express mobile app is a streamlined version of Drugs@FDA, allowing users to search on their mobile devices for certain product information based on product name, active ingredient or application number using a single search box. Some information (like labeling supplements and approval letters) won’t be available on the app, but can be found on the Drugs@FDA webpage.

The app will also feature the most recent product approvals, within seven days, links to the Drugs@FDA glossary and frequently asked questions. It will also provide contact information for the FDA’s Division of Drug Information, druginfo@fda.hhs.gov.

This free mobile app can be downloaded via iTunes (for Apple devices) and the Google Play store (for Android devices).
