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.


All HAWK products are simple to install to your excavator to assist with a wide range of excavation, construction, and dredging projects.

RTK GPS Dredge & Dig System

Our new RTK GPS system can be attached to a dredge pump, clamshell, or bucket, so you always know exactly where you’re dredging. This prevents over- or under-dredging, which is important for maintaining the stability of the area. It also helps you avoid damaging any underground utilities or other sensitive areas. For example, if you were to dig a hole without first checking for underground utilities, you could potentially damage or even break a water or gas line.
