Ross Labs Wins Contract for Hydrographic Sweep System (USA)

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, awarded a contract in the amount of around $240.000 to Ross Labs LLC., for a multi-channel hydrographic sweep system for hydrographic surveying for the Rio Grande Valley Resident Office, Port Isabel, Texas.

“This contract will retrofit one of our survey vessels with extendable survey arms and a multi-channel survey system capable of collecting three lines of survey data on a single pass,” said Chip Worley, USACE Galveston District’s Southern Area Office engineer. “It will greatly improve our efficiency and density of survey data. If this beta test is successful it will change the way the Galveston District surveys shallow-draft channels.”

According to Worley, the equipment is scheduled to be installed on a government survey boat (RGV-01) from Port Isabel next month. He added that hydrographic surveys will enable staff to identify shoaling areas along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway for maintenance dredging purposes as well as provide a baseline survey for comparison purposes in the event of a hurricane or tropical storm.
