Advancements in Data Collection for Accurate Design

Enhancing Urban Waterfront Inspections
with Remote Sensing Equipment

Taylor Zimmerman, EIT and Sean Dirscherl, PE, combined forces and leveraged their induvial expertise to present the Use of Remote Sensing Equipment for Above and Underwater Inspections at (Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers) SNAME’s Society Meeting’s Technical Session.

The team discussed how urban waterfront properties typical to New York Harbor are uniquely difficult to inspect due to limited access, hazardous and unpredictable environmental conditions, and tight windows to gather information.

To overcome these obstacles, the marine engineering group utilizes remote sensing equipment to supplement and enhance the collection of data by our dive and survey teams. These devices, including remote-operated submersible vehicles, aerial drones, and surface vessels, promote safety and increase the quality of inspection and survey deliverables. These deliverables set design teams up with the best information to prepare accurate and sufficiently detailed designs.
