Trimble Marine Construction (TMC) Software

Improve productivity and efficiency in underwater marine construction applications including cutter suction dredging and excavator (backhoe) dredge. TMC provides accurate 3D visualization to assist the operator with underwater construction tasks.

  • Real-time visualization of the bucket/dredge head relative to the design in plan, profile (2D) or 3D improves productivity and reduces rework and over-dredge.
  • Large grid models (color bins) make it easier to visualize differences between actual and design.
  • Improve accuracy and speed with laser and sonar scans providing real-time updates on material placement or removal. Reduces the need for vessels to return back for rework.
  • Highly configurable to suit endless machine/vessel configurations.
  • Easy-to-create volume calculations and reports reduce the need for operators to request office processing.

TMC and Trimble sensors support a range of marine construction workflows including:


Cutter Suction Dredger
Bucket Dredger
Backhoe/Excavator Dredger
Grab/Clamshell Dredger


Rock Dumping and Placement
Caisson Placement
Block Placement using Wire crane or Excavator
Vertical and Raked pile placement
