The Portable Mobile Mapping & GIS Data Collection Solution
Dynascan Mobile Mapping System
Dynascan offers a unique solution in the mobile LiDAR scanning market. The use of a rotating laser head allows for full 360° scanning with no ‘blind spots' and the lack of internal moving parts is inherently very robust, a great advantage in rugged terrain surveys. With 1 cm and 5 cm laser accuracy versions and the compact incorporation of leading GNSS and IMU technology Dynascan offers a unique blend of performance, portability and price.
Sales and distribution
Alongside the Dynascan M250 and S250 products the Dynascan technology is also available in products supplied by Trimble Navigation Limited. As a result there are different sales channels for Dynascan and Trimble products depending on applications and geographic territory.
For sales enquiries worldwide for Dynascan M250 product within mining, quarrying or marine applications, please contact MDL directly.
For Dynascan S250 sales enquiries within the UK and Canada for mining, quarrying or marine applications, please contact MDL directly.
For Dynascan S250 sales and service enquiries within Australia for any application, please contact MDL directly.
For all other countries and applications, MDL have an exclusive agreement with Trimble. For further information please contact Trimble directly.
Small Size and Weight
Unlike other Mobile Mapping Systems, Dynascan' s small size and weight provides the versatility to deploy on smaller vehicles or vessels. This allows areas of limited or difficult access (e.g. along steep narrow tracks), parks, small river tributaries and narrow water ways to be "dynamically" surveyed.
Dynascan's portability means that the equipment is easily transported and the system can be mobilised on any moving platform that is land or marine based within hours. A Dynascan pod weighs 17 kg's and 25 kg's for the single and dual head systems respectively.
Dynascan contains no delicate scanning mechanisms or rotating mirrors and was designed from the outset to operate in the world's most extreme environments. The Dynascan is built to industrial specifications with an all weather design ensuring the system will operate ‘straight out of the box' after long trans-shipment journeys, minimising down time on the job and time in the repair shop.
No heavy or cumbersome mounting brackets are required with all sensors factory calibrated and aligned (inside the Pod). One Cable from the Dynascan Pod to the rugged laptop eliminates the ‘Spaghetti Cabling problems' often associated with similar complex equipment. With a 12 or 36 volts DC supply voltage required the Dynascan can hook up to the vehicle or vessel battery system.
Fully Featured Software
The Dynascan System comes complete with its own fully featured Data Acquisition and 3D processing and Visualisation Software Suite. Based on "no limits" and modular design criteria enabling future developments. The key technology behind the Dynascan software is based on precise navigation, data acquisition, presentation, storage and processing large volumes of data all in real-time to produce almost final results on-the-fly. This also includes techniques in real-time 3D visualisation of both the Land and Marine environment. The Dynascan software provides the user a friendly turnkey solution, from project planning to data collection, quality control, data cleaning, volume calculations and chart production, offering a seamless data flow using a large variety of sensors, all the way to the final product. The Dynascan systems has the flexibility to interface to any sensor, whether this is a GPS receiver, an IMU, a Camera or Video System, a multi-beam echo-sounder or a side scan sonar system. The software offers a large variety of data exchange formats, such as DXF, XTF, GeoTIFF, GSF, BAG or ASCII, that allows the user to exchange data with many other industry standard applications.
Dynascan System and Software Training
MDL offer a comprehensive training package which can be tailored to your specific requirements. The training courses are ‘Modular' and cover all aspects of the Data Acquisition and Post Processing Software will be covered in all training packages as well as Data Management and Data Exporting to 3rd Party Software systems. Training courses include 2 days of real time data acquisition including Land and Marine operations. Candidates will get hands on experience with Dynascan data acquisition and processing. All courses will be held at an MDL training facility.
