U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) operates hundreds of navigation locks and dams across the country, more than half of which are over 50 years old. Despite the USACE’s multi-billion dollar investment in navigation structures, many locks, dams, and reservoirs are falling into disrepair due to age, lack of funding, and the general difficulty and hazards of conducting underwater inspections. In order to maintain essential hydroelectric infrastructure across the United States, many USACE units rely on VideoRay ROVs for regular inspections
