3D Model

The first full-sized digital scan of the Titanic, which lies 3,800m (12,500ft) down in the Atlantic, has been created using Voyis optical sensors. It provides a unique 3D view of the entire ship, enabling it to be seen as if the water has been drained away.

Voyis provided its state-of-the-art Observer & Nova subsea imaging system in support of this endeavour. With an actively cooled high-dynamic range camera and more than ½ million lumens of flash lighting, this setup enabled the best possible colour images of the wreck. Over 700,000 images were reliably captured during the multi-day survey of the region, recording millimetric details of every aspect of the site. At 3,800m below the sea, the Observer Pro delivered clear, accurate images that were automatically corrected for both colour & lighting. This delivered the image quality and consistency needed to produce Magellan’s seamless Digital Twin that you see today. This resolution and colour accuracy, powered by Voyis’ proprietary True Colour correction, has never been deployed on a wreck of this size, and was key in removing the blue and green hues that are typical in subsea optical survey. 


This precise visual data formed the foundation for generating the comprehensive 3D model of the entire ship, an immense processing undertaking by Magellan. Voyis is now able to release some of the colour corrected original images in full resolution.

In addition to the Observer & Nova, Magellan also trialled a Voyis Insight Pro laser system to scan the wreck and debris field. The Insight Pro underwater laser scanner may provide researchers with the quantitative capability to directly measure even the smallest features. The laser model can complement the image-based Digital Twin to help further understand the rate of degradation of the historic site and measure the profile and scour on the feature-limited seabed. Voyis is also sharing limited exports from the laser model.
