VRHabilis was awarded a subcontract to perform underwater geophysical mapping using SideScan sonar mapping and bathemetry, in the coastal waters off of Sandy Hook, New Jersey.

VRH dive team members studied an area outside of the munitions response area and installed an instrument verification strip.  The VRH dive team collected baseline geophysical data to be used in comparison to the data collected in the munitions response area.  Underwater geophysical mapping data was collected and analyzed within the munitions response area.  Irregularities were re-obtained using DGPS technology with sub-meter accuracy.  VRH divers then studied the items using “surface supplied” diving equipment.

VRHabilis completed 20 days of diving, and 6 days of at-sea geophysical mapping, without incident.
