CT Systems officially released what it is calling the world’s first all in one dredging computer, GeoDredge. GeoDredge houses all necessary components in a single housing. GeoDredge acts as a hardware platform for the Viking software.

CT Systems said its goal is for any operator to be able to operate the system without any prior extensive training.

With the advent of GeoDredge, it is no longer necessary to install separate components. GeoDredge utilizes an internal industrial computer, fully featured (RTK/DGPS) GNSS receiver, UHF communication, industrial GSM/UMTS modem, sensor interfacing and all power distribution. Virtually all major GNSS manufacturers are supported on direct OEM level.

GeoDredge is targeted at dredging machines and vessels where installation room is limited and ease of use of the monitoring equipment is required, CT systems said. Initially built for hydraulic dredge excavators, the system expanded to also actively support machines such as grab dredgers and cutter-suction dredgers.

GeoDredge is fully conceived, developed and built in-house by CT Systems, enabling them to offer full after sales support. CT Systems can also fulfill complete installations of a GeoDredge system, including all sensors, wiring, calibrations and project preparations.
