SCCS - The Survey Equipment Company
SCCS have supplied, with continued support to Extrudakerb, a Leica TS15 utilising the MA Tracker and M Guide licences which communicate to the Wirtgen Autopilot Paving Control System currently being used on the A1 Scotch Corner project
For the first time, measurement technology is provided with an intuitive experience and straightforward navigation. Extremely effortless software, trustworthy equipment, and excellent support combine for solution with the most challenging demands.
Leica Captivate is the new software for the recognised Leica Viva and Nova measuring instruments. With touch technology and familiar applications, it is possible to acquire and manage complicated data with minimal effort.
As the leading supplier of surveying equipment to the construction industry we will be showcasing and demonstrating some of the most innovative solutions and services we provide. This includes the latest MULTIROTOR Service Drone, GPS Echo Sounder, Machine Control Solutions, SCC Software and the new Amberg IMS 1000 Rail Trolley.
We look forward to welcoming you on stand G10.
Last week at the SPAR International Conference in Houston Texas, USA along with the announcement of the new Leica ScanStation family of scanners we also introduced several new Leica Geosystems HDS™ software product offerings. Leica JetStream Ultra-High Performance Point Cloud Project Server and TruView Global.
Leica JetStream provides the exhilaration of instantly opening and immersing yourself in laser scan point clouds -- with literally billions of points -- inside the world’s most popular CAD systems using Leica CloudWorx. Users will experience the new “All-the-points, All-the-time” capability while panning and zooming in real-time like never before. This product was literally greeted with applause when introduced at the SPAR product release party and the demos in the booth showed this product will be making a huge splash in the market when it ships later this quarter.
TruView Global introduces fast, easy, fun and effective methods of sharing your point cloud data anywhere, anytime. Users can drag and drop TruView projects into the cloud and connect their entire project ecosystems with no-install required, accessed from desktop and mobile platforms with shared markups and annotations, and more. They can also begin to truly develop a Content-as-a-Service business offering to leverage point cloud projects across town and across the globe.
You can learn more by reading the recent press releases which give a great overview of each of these new products:

Yet again SCCS are recognising technological developments in survey instrumentation. The need to remove your staff from hazardous areas, whilst improving productivity and accuracy are hot topics within the surveying and construction world, and what better way to do this than with UAV technology.
SCCS recently signed a distributor agreement with service-drone, giving SCCS the sole rights to distribute their products within the U.K. Service Drone are an innovative forward thinking company based in Germany. Their products allow for either autonomous or manual flight controls using in-house flight software.
The main advantages to flying this “copter” is that it allows for vertical take-off and landing and also allows you to take “static” imagery from a hovering position. (Held in position using on board GPS that navigates the flight-robot to an exact position in the air updating 512 times per second) The “Surveying Robot” enables a hardly conceivable measurement result of up to 1 mm ground resolution and equally unique flight stability at wind strengths of 10-15 meter per second.
Whilst in Germany, the SCCS team were lucky enough to witness a local company survey an aggregates quarry, which measured 12.0 Ha in area and was approximately 60m deep. This was conventionally surveyed with Leica GNSS receivers (Network RTK), taking the three company surveyors two days to complete the site work. The MULTIROTOR flight planning took 15mins in the office, the actual flight time was approx. 30mins and the final processing took approximately 3-4 hrs. The resulting end products/deliverables included a point cloud, decimated 3D triangulated DXF, a Google Earth Model KMZ file and an Orthophoto.
The system has many applications including bulk earthworks projects involving volumetric, progress surveys, topographic surveys of large areas and inspection surveys. On a basic level service drone provides a pictorial representation of site condition, and can be used to inspect Infrastructure which would normally need specialist manpower/equipment.
