Ross Labs LLC won an Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District $242755.16 contract for a multi-channel hydrographic sweep system for hydrographic surveying for the Rio Grande Valley Resident Office in 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 shallowdraft channels.”
Worley said the equipment will be installed on a government survey boat (RGV-01) from Port Isabel in September for identifying shoaling in areas along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.
