RESON is supplier of singlebeam-, multibeam-, dredge guidance and hydrographic software systems. PDS2000 Anchor Handling / Barge management has been designed to support barges, tugs and stationary dredgers in controlling anchor handling using a wireless communication link. The Anchor Handling assists the operators to carry out their job more efficiently. The program shows in real time the positions of both the barge and all the support vessels. Next to that, PDS2000 Anchor Handling assists the barge operator with planning the anchor patterns. The Barge master can change anchor positions by simply moving one or more anchors to a new position on his screen. For every anchor moved a new Anchor Move request is created. The Barge master can assign these requests to the available tugboats. These assigned requests will show up on Tug's planview as a button indicating an anchor handling request. By clicking the button the tugmaster confirms the request has been received and will be carried out. During the anchor handling, different icons show in real time to all vessels whether the anchor is on board the barge or the tug, what the new anchor position has to be and the new actual position after the anchor is dropped. A helmsman display will guide the tug from the old to the new anchor position. A Log file is maintained and saved of all anchor handlings and can be used for reporting. The planview will also show a color-coded Digital Terrain Model (DTM) with DXF and/ or an electronic sea chart. The DTM can be updated in real time, for example with the progress of dredging work. PDS2000Anchor Handling is available as a stand-alone application or as part of other PDS2000 applications. Images courtesy Burbo Project Mammoet Van Oord
