Reson Wins Detroit USACE Contract

The Detroit District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) awarded a contract to Reson, Inc. for the integration, delivery, training, and support of an automated Strike Recovery and Removal System. The system, consisting of a Reson SeaBat 900 IS, Coastal Oceanographies' HYPACK navigation software, Triton Technology's Isis Image Processing System, a Seatex MRU5 Motion Sensor, and a Robertson gyrocompass, is to be installed on the derrick boat Nicolet, a tug-maneuvered barge situated on the St. Mary's River in Sault St. Marie. The automated system is designed to locate and assist with the removal of "strikes," which are rocks that have been detected by acoustic survey operations that provide a potential hazard to ships using this busy waterway. The performance and capabilities of this system will reportedly provide the Detroit District with the ability to locate and remove strikes economically and efficiently.
