The first field test of the new real time dredging sonar system called Multi Dredge is commissioned on the Dutch river Vecht, announced CT Systems.
The new Multi Dredge system consists of multiple survey-grade transducers strategically placed on a dredging vessel.
Each transducer is individually controlled and timed by the Viking software and the georeferenced bathymetric data of each transducer is used to upgrade the dredging matrix in real time.
With the use of the Multi Dredge system, the dredging vessel simultaneously functions as a survey vessel, saving a considerable amount of time and money in the process.
