The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and ERDC takes delivery of a new remote-operated Subdredge built by EDDY Pump.
The unit was just delivered to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Headquarters, to start initial trials. Later this unmanned submersible unit will be handed over to a United States Army Platoon to conduct projects including shoreline deepening for military landing crafts, shipping channel dredging, and emergency relief projects all over the world.

This joint collaboration of Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), the USACE and EDDY Pump was developed in order to provide our United States Army with much-needed mission ready dredging technology that is versatile and as modular as possible.
The modular dredging system consists of three standard commercial sized shipping containers and can ship globally. Deploy within an hour in any harsh dredging environment.
- Powered by a 325 Horsepower Hydraulic Power Unit
- 6-inch Eddy Pump capable of moving up to 225 cubic yards of material per hour over distances up to a mile
- Advanced machine learning capability that will allow it to operate autonomously
This is the first image released after months of engineering and fabrication at our San Diego, CA headquarters. More photos and videos to come in Q4 and Q1 2019.
