The survey covers ∼800deg2 of the inner galaxy (|b|<4°) in Stokes I, Q, and U parameters at 100 and 150GHz, with angular resolutions of 5 and 3.5 arcmin, respectively. Five hundred and twenty-six unique sources are identified in I, of which 239 are spatially matched between frequency bands, with 53 (234) detected at 100 (150)GHz alone; 170 sources are identified as ultracompact HII regions. Four sources are detected in polarized intensity P, of which three have matching counterparts in I. Three of the polarized sources lie close to the Galactic center, Sagittarius A*, Sagittarius B2, and the Galactic Radio Arc, while the fourth is RCW 49, a bright HII region. An extended polarized source, undetected by the source extraction algorithm on account of its ∼0.5° size, is identified visually, and is an isolated example of large-scale polarized emission oriented distinctly from the bulk Galactic dust polarization. Description: QUaD was a 2.6m Cassegrain radio telescope. The observations reported in this paper were made between 2007 July and October, with the telescope decommissioned in late 2007. In total QUaD surveyed the Galaxy for 40 days, covering a total of ∼800deg2. File Summary:
