Laser scanners to aid in detecting explosive ordnance on the seabed

Laser scanners to aid in detecting explosive ordnance on the seabed

Guest post: Mrs Regina Rösch, Fraunhofer IPM

 

“The underwater LiDAR system (ULi) developed by Fraunhofer IPM optically detects objects underwater from a safe distance, enabling the creation of a 3D picture of the environment at a distance of 50 meters in clear water. ”

 

Several million tons of explosive ordnance from World War II still remain at the bottom of the sea. In the Eurostars project LUXOR, Fraunhofer IPM and four European project partners are now researching new methods for a more efficient, safer and automated identification of these objects, using LiDAR technology and AI.
