Laser Technology in Subsea Applications


Following construction of the first laser in 1960 at the Hughs Research Laboratories, introduction in subsea applications began formally in 1978. Potential utilization for subsea applications appeared in a NOAA Technical publication published in 1980 (NOAA Technical Memorandum ERL PMEL-18, Howard R. Gordon, Editor). Through these studies and subsequent application investigations, understanding of attenuation, backscatter and frequency phase shift measurements through interferometry has advanced. Development of laser based, range finding and line scanning has created a novel form of visualization in the subsea environment.

With the integration of highly precise inertial navigational methodology, the industry of mobile laser mapping technology is currently thriving. Laser instrumentation development and transmit frequency optimization allow for high precision surveys at depths in excess of 4000 meters with sub millimeter accuracy. Further introduction of point cloud processing technology is now propelling the laser scanning industry toward as-built level 3-D model products and the potential for virtual reality applications in the offshore and coastal industries.
