LBath

LBath

Sponsors: Office of Naval Research Project Overview: A Microbathymetric Laser Imaging System: The submersible laser bathymetric (LBath) optical system is capable of simultaneously providing visual images and generating bathymetric maps of the sea floor with centimeter spatial and depth resolution. The system operates at roughly 10 m above the sea floor and builds a bathymetric image by taking successive swaths of the sea floor as the system moves through the water as either a towed or an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). The system has been designed with the specific purpose of remotely identifying semi-submerged mines in turbid coastal waters.
