Underwater Imaging & Metrology Part 1

14 Mar 2018, 10:00 - 12:10

South Gallery Room 5

Chaired by: Simon Waterfield, Head of Survey Support Group, Sonardyne & Blair Cunningham, President of Technology & Divisional CEO, Coda Octopus Products

This session will introduce new imaging and metrology techniques as well as look at increasing efficiencies based on recent experiences. During the session delegates will gain an understanding of the challenges in obtaining high resolution imagery and measurements, the great benefits it can bring for future operational planning and how the industry may need to change in order to take full advantage of the way we view data. The session will also discuss how further cost reductions using existing metrology methods can be achieved through operational efficiencies and simplification.
