WINOPS Real-Time Dredge Positioning Software
Category:
Navigation/Positioning Systems
Surveying
Description:
"WINOPS" is a data acquisition and conditioning system used to correlate a dredge's position
with the position of a bucket, cutterhead, or draghead. It can accept signals from GPS, and
various pressure, electro-mechanical, or acoustic transducers and hydrographic instrumentation
and provide the dredge operator with real-time dredge position relative to the bucket cutterhead
or draghead locations, all relative to the channel. The system provides channel cross sections and
positions in x, y, and z planes. It can also factor in tidal data when appropriate. The system uses
PC's with Windows 95/NT operating systems.
