Horned Scullies, Bombs & Treasure
Feb 20, 2014
What is that? What are they looking for? Are they looking for bombs? During the month of December a jet helicopter towing a 30-foot wide glider was watched by thousands of Florida’s Treasure Coast beach-goers.
The Army Corps of Engineers at Fort Pierce knew what our helicopter was doing as did several historic shipwreck enterprises. Aqua Survey was using a new technology called a Potassium-Vapor Magnet Gradiometer to survey about 70 square miles of coastline and near-coastal waters for Horned Scullies, unexploded ordnance (bombs) and shipwrecks.
With our glider flying as low as 15 feet off the water, we surveyed approximately 70 square miles of ocean in only 20 days. That’s not too difficult when you can survey at 50-60 miles per hour.
When compared to data Aqua Survey or other firms had collected using vessel-towed Cesium Magnetometers, the glider proved to be as effective as, or better than, waterborne systems when it came to pinpointing ferrous targets.
What would have taken years to complete on the water was accomplished in a fraction of the time with our new airborne survey solution.
