LTG Semonite Discusses Unique Dredging Capability of the Subdredge

Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite, USACE Commanding General and 54th U.S. Army Chief of Engineers, discussed a unique dredging capability with Thad Pratt at U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory on Feb. 19, 2019.

The new remote-operated Subdredge, which was built by EDDY Pump, was delivered to the Army Corps in late 2018.

The Mini-Robotic Dredge’s capabilities were successfully tested for the first time on the ERDC campus in Vicksburg, Miss., Dec. 20, 2018.

The MRD is being evaluated for its expeditionary dredging capability to support improved access to the shore and reduce deployment timelines during Anti-Access/Anti-Denial and Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Relief Operations.
