2G Robotics, a global leader in underwater laser scanners and imaging solutions for the Offshore Energies, Geosciences and Defense industries, are in Southampton, UK to launch their newest integrated dynamic laser scanning solution at Ocean Business 2019, Booth W36. The show, which runs from April 9 – 11, is the world’s leading international sea technology show.
The new Dynamic Laser Scanning Skid incorporates all sensors required for high precision data collection, reducing the complexity of equipment mobilizations for UAVs and ROVs. The system has already been successfully tested with clients in the gulf of mexico, in collaboration with Seatronics (an Acteon company), and will now be available for rent globally through Seatronics.
The Dynamic Laser Scanning Skid includes a number of key features that save time and cost:
- navigation and laser scanning come bundled together in a single integrated unit, eliminating complex piecemeal integrations
- ROV survey skid payload can easily be swapped in or out, enabling clients to quickly change missions
- small footprint, enabling installation on a variety of vehicles, from mid-class to work-class inspection
- delivered fully integrated, with nothing to configure, patch test, assemble or calibrate
Attendees to Ocean Business 2019 will be able to see the Dynamic Laser Scanning Skid first-hand at Booth W36.
According to Scott Gray, UK General Manager for Seatronics Ltd:
“We continually strive to offer our clients innovative and efficient subsea technology solutions. The Dynamic Laser Scanning Skid is a key addition to our global rental fleet, providing our clients with high precision data capture and vast scan coverage in a single calibrated package that reduces complexity of equipment mobilisation.”
According to 2G Robotics CEO Jason Gilham:
“Since our inception, 2G Robotics has strived to continuously improve the efficiency of underwater operations through laser and imaging. And this new deployment option, in partnership with Seatronics, allows us to deliver on this promise in ways that are faster and simpler than ever.”
Chris Gilson, 2G Robotics Product Development Manager, will be presenting a brief background on the technology behind 2G’s underwater laser scanners, followed by a workshop on how to effectively plan a dynamic laser scanning mission. The session will take place on Wednesday April 10 2019, in room 121/11 of the Student Centre.
