Underwater vehicles

Complementing radar-based images

Lidar imaging is specially indicated in underwater environments, since it perfectly complements radar-based techniques, is tolerant to particles in suspension, and allows a degree of resolution hitherto nonexistent using radar. The technology may be customized for each specific solution with concrete needs, including supervision of infrastructures, maintenance of facilities and installations (petrol platforms, oil rigs, gas or fiber pipelines..) enabling large spatial resolution. The inspection and maintenance of submerged areas of recreational and industrial vessels for integrity checks without leaving the sea is also a very relevant application, easily implementable onto small robotic underwater vehicles.
