Abstract : This report describes the Silent Inspector system developed for monitoring hopper dredge operations. The system collects and records measurements from shipboard sensors, calculates the dredging activities being performed and the weight of the material being recovered, and displays this information through standard reports and graphical data displays. Recorded data are also automatically backed up and later archived to allow transfer of the data to other locations. The Silent Inspector data can provide a permanent record of the dredging activity. This report is intended to be used by systems engineers. A companion report entitled Silent Inspector User's Manual (Cox, Maresca, and Jarvela 1995) published by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station describes how to operate the installed system.
