Lighthouse Preservation: A Case Study in Reality Modeling

Combining multiple survey methodologies, Aqua Survey is able to create engineering-grade 3D point cloud models that seamlessly transition between above and below water. This was a crucial support tool to the engineers assessing the structural integrity of the historic Hudson-Athens Lighthouse in Hudson, New York.

Seamless Land & Water Surveys

The area between land and water is one that has been difficult to survey with traditional methods. One of Aqua Survey’s specialties is creating engineering quality 3D models of this transitional zone through the application of recent technological advancements.

Our Rossfelder/Cousteau Connection

Whenever we deploy our inflatable Rossfelder barge, it’s amazing to think that Jacque Cousteau’s son, Phillipe, used to go bombing around the South Pacific with it tucked away in Cousteau’s seaplane, the Flying Calypso. When I watch our field techs using one of Andre Rossfelder’s vibracore units, I think about some of the James Bond-like stories Andre told me about his youth, including his attempts to assassinate Charles De Gaulle. Andre was a fascinating man. If you have a few minutes, enjoy the video. – Ken Hayes

Gettysburg – An Archeological Investigation

Aqua Survey recently performed a survey on private land near Gettysburg National Military Park. Fought on July 1-3, 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg was a decisive Union victory and the bloodiest battle ever fought in North America. The area surveyed is believed to have been a Confederate field hospital during the conflict.

Aqua Survey’s UXO Survey Capabilities

Aqua Survey’s UXO/MEC/MC capabilities include specialty vessels, geophysical survey and remote sensing instruments and precision positioning  systems.  Using proprietary sediment sampling we can safely collect sediment cores in areas known to have or suspected of having UXO or MEC present.  Our certified sediment toxicology laboratory can expertly test sediment samples for toxicity derived from environmental contaminants including
munitions constituents.  Tissue uptake studies can also be performed.

EM ROV

Aqua Survey’s ROV’s provides a nimble survey solution for working in difficult to navigate locations or areas ecologically-sensitive areas where contact with flora and fauna must be minimized. Equipped with an electro-magnetic coil, the EM-ROV is capable of detecting non-ferrous as well as ferrous metals.

Ultra Marine Magnetometer Array

Some clients need to pinpoint metal objects while working in ecologically fragile environments or cover large areas quickly. That’s when we deploy UMMA — the Ultra Marine Magnetometer Array Aqua Survey’s team of scientists pilot the UMMA underwater at a precisely predetermined altitude off the seafloor, mapping former military bombing ranges, harbors, and archeological sites for ferrous targets.

Floating Market Thailand

On a recent layover in Thailand to continue our work with UXO (unexploded ordnance) in Laos, a few of us at ASI seized the opportunity to venture outside of Bangkok for a day. What we found was the Damnoenssaduak floating market. Consisting of an intricate network of canals, it’s a writhing medley of commerce where everything from exotic fruits to touristy kitsch are hawked daily. Read the full story here.

Trail of the Atocha

Watch as the Aqua Survey team joins Mel Fisher’s Treasures to continue pinpointing historical artifacts along the Atocha debris trail in Key West, FL. Aqua Survey employs the new 1 meter diver EM sled to search the bottom and help locate treasure. The divers locate a high priority signal and the Mel Fisher crew decide to excavate. Could they be on the heels of a new stockpile of treasure?

UXO Surveys: A Safer Future

In the United States alone there are over 200,000 submerged acres suspected of containing Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) and Munitions & Explosives of Concern (MEC). These areas are in shallow water zones such as wetlands, freshwater ponds and lakes, estuaries, rivers, coastal bays, tidal flats, ocean shores and coral reefs. As many of the nation’s military bases are closing and being turned over to civilian use, there is a mandate for these areas to be geophysically surveyed to reveal any concealed hazards.

Passaic Multibeam 2014

The top image shows the location along the river as well as shoreline structures and features. The bottom left is the sweep window. Each ray represents an individual sounding beam. Combined they constitute a single sweep of data. The line where they end at the bottom shows the profile of the river bottom for that sweep. The bottom right window is the waterfall window. Each individual sweep is plotted at the bottom one after another which results in a three dimensional color coded image of the survey transect.
