Naval Facilities Engineering Services Center (NFESC) in Port Hueneme, CA awarded SST a task for $2,487,935 to continue with Phase 3 of the Expeditionary Swimmer Defense System (XSDS), that provides base security from waterborne intruders. In Phase 1 SST developed a preliminary design for the XSDS instrumented barrier system. In Phase 2 SST designed, fabricated and demonstrated a full-scale prototype system with gate functions. Phase 3 will continue to advance the design, fabricate and demonstrate the fully functional system. A pilot installation has recently become operational on the waterside of a nuclear power plant.
