笔者评：从地上到水下也一种全新的思路，3D at Depth提供水下激光扫描仪工作的技术结合CDL的业务开发新的水下点云获取设备INSCAN，对于水下高精度探测领域应该是一个重大的进步。很多相应的应用领域肯定会有新的作业方式的改进和发展。
SAN ANTONIO – Billed as the world’s first underwater LiDAR system designed specifically for the subsea oil and gas industry, INSCAN provides fast, high resolution 3D data capture for surveying, as-builts and monitoring. The system collects up to 40,000 points per second, provides a 360° by 30° field of view and can either provide real-time operator measurements or output to industry standard point clouds.
“This is game changing technology for the industry,” says Neil Manning, president of CDL Inc. “The use of laser scanning for metrology and inspection will drastically reduce time and costs while improving accuracy. We have just scratched the surface of how we can use this technology, and we plan to develop workflows and tooling for a variety of applications.”
“CDL is a leader in the development of high quality systems for the subsea oil and gas industry,” says Carl Embry, founder & CTO of 3D at Depth. “This has been a tremendous partnership. The INSCAN product is a result of CDL’s proven subsea engineering capabilities and our patented technology.”
