CT Systems unveils the all-new Viking Dredge software specifically designed for use on a wide range of dredging vessels, ranging from a small cutter dredger to a large seagoing hopper dredger.

Viking Dredge continues on the foundations and success of the existing Viking Navigation software. With Viking Navigation as a rock solid base, Viking Dredge offers the same ease of use and extended navigation functions. Besides the existing Navionics and Autocad DXF support, Viking is expanded with support for 3D DTM, XYZ matrix, and XYZ ASCII data. With direct support for a wide variety of sensors such as angle sensors, depth gauges and pressure sensors, Viking Dredge can visualise and register the entire dredging process.

Extended functionalities of the Viking software

Besides the use on dredging vessels, Viking Dredge can also be deployed on grab dredgers and hydraulic excavators. Using an RTK GPS, inclinometers and an optional wire-length measurement, Viking Dredge can work on earth-moving machines with centimetre precision according to a 3D terrain model.

The arrival of Viking Dredge significantly expands the Viking software. The lightweight Target version, the Navigation version for advanced positioning, and the all-new Viking Dredge enable Viking to be deployed on a diverse number of ships, dredging vessels and earth-moving machines.
