The principal scope of our firm is to provide sufficient and efficient technical support, starting from a 3D laser scanning survey on board, until providing full engineering study. Keeping this in mind, NAVAL – DME after careful consideration of the demands arising during a 3D laser scan onboard made two choices for 3D laser scanners, in order to enhance its services .
- The Leica BLK360 is a professional 3D scanner made by Leica, a manufacturer based in Switzerland. This compact 3D scanner uses laser 3D scanning technology to capture its environment in 3D. In addition to its LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensor, the Leica BLK360 offers infrared sensors for thermal imaging and 360° cameras. These cameras can perform spherical imaging with HDR support and LED flash, which creates 150 MP spherical HDR images. It takes only 3 minutes for the Leica BLK360 to perform a full 360° capture.
- The Faro FocusM 70 3D laser scanner was made by Faro, a manufacturer based in Switzerland. A high-speed three-dimensional laser scanner for detailed measurement and documentation produces exceedingly detailed three-dimensional images of complex environments and geometries in only a few minutes. The resulting images are an assembly of millions of 3D measurement points, which can provide technical information for any marine project. It is designed for both indoor and outdoor application, that makes feasible to scan the ship’s inside areas (i.e. Engine Room Floors, Pump Room Floors, Funnels, Pipe Lines, Decks’ Structures, etc.) and the outside (i.e. Decks, Ship Hull, etc.). It can scan short and long distances approaching 0.6 to 70 m/scan. HDR imaging for scanning in sunny areas, capture speed about 488,000 pts/sec, low weight, high data quality, low noise level, GPS and GLONASS for finding a position are some of the incorporated tools.
The main technical data of both scanners are displayed below.
