2GRobotics Training Day Tuesday 22/03/2016

Underwater laser scanner

Underwater laser scanning is a proven solution for subsea inspections. In the past, sonar technology has been the primary solution for subsea asset modeling and measurements. However, sonar does not deliver the detail necessary for understanding the state of subsea assets.

Underwater laser scanning provides the precision and accuracy necessary for detecting and assessing damage, developing design and repair plans, and performing maintenance and installations.

The underwater laser scanning technology generates real-time 3D models of subsea assets and environments from which measurements can instantaneously and repeatably be captured.
