Abstract:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers spends in excess of 350 million annually dredging the nations ports, harbors and waterways. An additional 40 million is spent performing hydrographic surveys supporting the planning, engineering and design phases of this effort. The USAETL has been tasked to develop a real-time decimeter-level positioning system using Global Positioning System GPS technology to support the Corps hydrographic surveying and dredging operations. This paper discusses USAETLs research and development efforts involved in the development of this positioning system.
