Morgan & Eklund (M&E) has a 35-year history of providing accurate and reliable survey services in support of marine and coastal infrastructure projects, beach restoration and large-scale water management projects.
Ocean News & Technology posted a story on how M&E successfully completed a sonar survey to map and monitor an artificial reef offshore Fort Pierce along the Treasure Coast of eastern Florida. The survey was done with an autonomous surface vessel equipped with a Velodyne lidar sensor, which provided mapping features above the water surface.
The article quotes M&E director Rob Collaro saying:
“M&E has continually adapted to the latest innovations and field methodologies during its 35-year corporate history. Our Remote Vehicle Services Division represents the latest chapter in how we leverage breaking technology to meet the surveying needs of Florida waters, beaches, and beyond by providing high quality, unbiased data to our clients.”
Another media outlet to cover the M&E story was ECO Magazine.
