The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is conducting large scale field testing of the Mini Robotic Submersible Dredge (MRSD) in Virginia.
The Subdredge is designed and manufactured by EDDY Pump Corporation. This is the latest dredge being added to the U.S. Military’s tool chest, said USACE.
Next stop will be operations in the UAE for a joint military project later in 2019.
During testing, there was a real dredging project near the test site that a 3rd party quoted at $50,000.
Instead of contracting this project, the impromptu job was completed by the MRSD, “just for fun” during testing, said USACE.
