Base Control Station

The Solar Base Station provides a fixed grounding point for the unit. 110VAC or 12VDC battery with solar panel compatible base station are included in the kit.


What is RTK GPS?

Real-time Kinematics or RTK GPS is a survey-grade precision GPS that gives dredge excavator operators the exact location of the bucket or hydraulic attachment underwater. A base station is used as a fixed point, which works in tandem with RTK GPS to provide the highest precision possible. The base station is like a True North that the unit can always calibrate to. This provides accuracy to less than an inch instead of feet, which is critical when a dredging project needs high precision.

Hydraulic Dredging

Attach the RTK GPS Positioning system to your excavator mounted hydraulic or electric powered dredge pump to always know where the suction head is under the waterline for marine or lake dredging


Mechanical Dredging

Attach the RTK GPS Positioning system to your excavator’s dredging bucket or other attachment to always know where the bucket is under the waterline.
