New Hydrographic Surveyor joins the team

Unmanned Survey Solutions are delighted to welcome Phil Crump (IHO Category A Hydrographic Surveyor) to their team.  Phil has excellent knowledge and experience with a range of survey equipment and processing software after having completed projects including navigation surveys for UKHO, wreck investigations, subsea inspection, pre and post lay surveys and subsea photogrammetry. He is now skilled in the mobilisation of nearshore and offshore vessels, following right through to data processing QC and data deliverables.

USV Operations

In Phils’ first few months he has been operating USV’s in and around the UK.  He was part of a 3-month deployment for a construction project in Merseyside using the Inception USV with a Norbit multi-beam and SBG Ekinox INS to monitor dredge fill operations.  He has also been part of the Remote Operations Control (ROC) team utilising the larger USV Accession where he was assisting with acquiring high resolutions SONIC2024 multi-beam data in Falmouth waters.

Phil said

“My biggest challenge so far has been getting to grips with remote surveying. I’m amazed at the new technology that is coming online and am excited to be part of such an innovative team, exploring, researching and developing USV’s to their full potential.”

With interests ranging from finding and diving on wrecks and surfing the Cornish waves, Phil is now working in the ideal location to indulge these hobbies.  If he has any spare time left, Phil can be found drinking hoppy beers and gin and tonic or bouldering with friends.
