Embarkation Center returns from joint mission with the Brazilian Navy
Manaus (AM) – On the afternoon of August 8th, the Embarkation Center of the Amazônia Military Command (CECMA), docked the Ferry Boat UIRÁ after 29 days of joint operation with the Brazilian Navy.
The mission aimed at acquiring bathymetric data (multibeam) on the course taken by the Ferry Boat UIRÁ, on the stretch between Manaus and São Gabriel da Cachoeira-AM. During the defeat, danger surveys were conducted on the critical stretches traveled by the vessel, which will enable the planning of safer navigation defeats for the transport of supplies by CECMA in the Negro River in future commissions.
The partnership between the Brazilian Army and the Brazilian Navy made it possible to carry out a multibeam commission on this itinerary, with a distance of more than 2,000 km, round trip. The survey was carried out using modern equipment that generated reliable reports and information for future studies.
The Multibeam echo sounder allows the acquisition of depth, being able to identify dangers to navigation that are on the bed, such as stones and sandbanks.
Thus, the interoperability between the Forces, through the joint work between the CECMA and the Northwest Hydrography and Navigation Center (CHN-9) will reduce the logistical difficulties for the maintenance of troops of both Forces and will contribute, in the future, to updating cartography, improving the logistics of supplies for the municipalities in the region.
