Prior to DSC VISION, operators relied on dredging experience, machine feel, and subjective instrumentation for ensuring real-time productivity; and post-dredging surveys for precise bathymetry or stockpile measurements and accurate mine planning. This technology leaves little to chance as the operator can see the entire bottom around the dredge and this data is stored into a comprehensive map of the dredging area or mine site for computation, historical documentation, and future planning.
The DSC Vision system integrates geographical dredge cutterhead position and heading, multibeam sonar imaging and mapping, dredge navigation and instrumentation, remote connectivity and monitoring, and a user graphical display and software interface that correctly depicts the current dredge location, depth of the cutterhead, and topography of the bottom.
Through this highly innovative, joint technology development between DSC Dredge, Teledyne Marine, and Trimble, dredge owners can leverage the competitive advantage of accurately and precisely excavating desired areas without leaving material behind from cave-ins or oversteps, which leads to higher production rates, lower energy consumption, and reduced downtime.
DSC Dredge, Teledyne Marine, and Trimble were instrumental in creating a data-rich, simple-to-use visual interface to efficiently guide dredge operators across the bottom of any lake, river, or reservoir.
Trimble delivers flexible, high performance positioning systems to meet the unique needs of dredge and marine construction operations. The portfolio includes marine information systems, GNSS receivers, antennas, radios, and inertial positioning systems, all of which can be used to provide accurate cutter head and sonar positioning.
Teledyne Marine has long been a leader in sonar imaging technology used to map oceans, waterways, and marine infrastructure for commercial, defense, and academic applications around the globe. Teledyne Marine continues to lead the way in infrastructure operations, with a line of compact, ruggedized 2D (imaging) and 3D (bathymetry) sonars that deliver underwater images and data with the range and resolution required in murky dredging environments.
