The 2G Robotics Underwater Laser Scanner has been used in a variety of markets. Below is a summary of several of the applications where the laser scanner was used effectively for underwater inspection.
Offshore Oil and Gas Construction
When performing subsea construction, understanding current or as-built dimensions is critical for further work. Incorrect and incomplete information regarding the status of the subsea asset will result in errors, delays and additional costs. Increasing the level of certainty regarding the dimensions of an asset during or in advance of a construction project will prevent undesirable consequences resulting from assumptions and guesses. This is particularly true for major assets such as offshore jackets and risers.

Underwater Laser Scanner Deployed in Antarctica
The lake is covered by 5m of ice and a 1m diameter hole was cut to allow divers and equipment access to the lake bed. The ULS-100 was mounted to a tripod and diver deployed through the hole in the ice to a depth of approximately 12m in the near zero degree Celsius water. With the sensor secure and in position, the scanner was operated from the surface and data collected for analysis.

Underwater Pipeline Inspection
A submerged pipe section was scanned using the ULS-100 allowing FEA and CFD analysis to be performed on the section. With this information an accurate determination of the optimal course of action could be determined.
