Teledyne PDS Update
The Teledyne PDS software suite applied to construction and dredge
Teledyne PDS for construction and dredge is used to monitor the progress of your project. Inside the Teledyne PDS suite there are a number of specialized out of the box solutions for a variety of specific applications. But you also have the possibility to combine different applications and customize Teledyne PDS to the exact solution you need.

We also use our 30 years of industry experience to build new applications together with customers to address their special needs.
The Teledyne PDS suite uses the same basic user interface and logic across all applications, which means once you are familiar with the suite it will be much faster to add new applications to your setup.

Here you can take a closer look at our out of the box applications for Dredge and  Construction
Various sensors and information – one solution – one overview

Teledyne PDS dredge systems support hydraulic excavators, wire cranes, bucket dredgers, underwater ploughs, trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHD),  cutter suction dredgers, jet dredgers, water injection dredgers and any other dredge vessel. Depending on the type of dredger the necessary sensors are interfaced and combined with information of your project such as the surveyed area, the design, charts,  it provides the complete overview.

The modular setup of Teledyne PDS makes it easy to extend the standard dredge solution with additional features to carry out more complex projects. As an example you could combine digging and diking or placement of material in one dredging system, or integrate a multibeam with a dredge guidance system such as a TSHD or a cutter dredger.  Also a multibeam on a Pan/Tilt unit is a solution to monitor the area combined with an excavator or wirecrane.

Another example within construction would be to integrate an underwater crawler with a multibeam system and USBL for positioning of deep water dredging.

Vessel Configuration for a general survey

In Teledyne PDS the main vessel management is done under the Vessel configuration. The Vessel Configuration includes different tab pages to manage the vessel. The most important pages are the ‘Geometry’ page and the ‘Equipment’ page. From the ‘Geometry’ page is the vessel shape selected and the Device offsets defined. From the ‘Equipment’ page are the device drivers added, the properties set and the IO set. The Vessel configuration is defined during the New Project wizard. This movie demonstrates how to use the Vessel Configuration for medium PDS users. The movie demonstrates a basic surface vessel setup.
