Remotely operated vessel surveys sediment pond

DML recently completed a shallow pond survey using its remotely operated vessel “KOURA”. The small radio controlled vessel undertook a single beam survey of a shallow suspended sediment pond for volume calculations. 

The platform was ideal in this situation due to:
Very shallow nature of the pond
Confined feeder channel
Suspended sediment may have caused issues with a traditional water-cooled outboard engine
Clean up of the vessel and equipment was a lot quicker
Contact with the pond water was kept to a minimum.
