Automatic Profiling Buoy
With Web-Accessible Data

June 14, 2017

A new moving platform integrated LiDAR solution for subsea data collection and survey projects was designed for AUV, ROV and manned underwater vehicles. It reduces survey time while delivering high-density point clouds for greater accuracy in data modeling and measurement.

During a recent ROV trial, 3D at Depth successfully integrated and collected motion-compensated subsea LiDAR data of an oilfield in water depths greater than 2,000 m using an ROV-mounted system. The trial validated the capability of INS-aided subsea LiDAR for a variety of applications, including field mapping and spool metrology surveys.
