USS Emmons is an American Second World War battleship of that sunk off Kouri Island in Okinawa, Japan, as a result of participating in the Battle of Okinawa in 1945. It was attacked by Kamikaze Special Attack Units and became inoperable. A high-quality 3D Structure-from-Motion (SfM) model was created that served to plan diver-based investigations and record the current state of the site. Together with the war-related documents from US and Japan, this research has revealed scientific evidence that has been used to reconstruct the battle of Emmons and the kamikaze planes.
