Why Voyis For Research & Ocean Science?

Suitable for a variety of deployments

Analyze your data in real-time

Non-intrusive to your subject

Accurate, quantifiable results

Knowledgable support 

Correction for true colour analysis

Applications

Underwater laser scanning and colour stills imaging are ieal for many subsea scientific endeavors. The high resolution provided by the technology allows for detailed 3D models of subsea environments to be rendered. 

$

Marine Archaeology

3D modeling allows historic and heritage sites, like shipwrecks, to be virtually experienced.

$

Environmental Monitoring

Study different habitats and environments over time with accurate measurements

$

Flume Tank/Lab-Based

Utilize laser scanning for a contactless way to gather data while testing

$

Large Area Mapping

Perfect for wide area colour imaging surveys where true-colour images are critical for the analysis of your subject.

Do I need a vehicle to use an underwater laser scanner?

You do not need a vehicle to deploy our underwater laser scanners. You can use the laser scanner statically using the supplied rotary actuator, or dynamically while mounted to a vehicle.

Do I need to use other sensors with an underwater laser scanner?

When scanning statically, there is no need for additional sensors. For dynamic operations, you will require an inertial navigation system (INS), a doppler velocity log (DVL), a depth sensor, and a conductivity temperature depth sensor (CTD). These sensors are all a part of our ROV Skid solutions.

Can I use an underwater laser scanner in a flume tank?

Underwater laser scanners are ideal for scanning in flume tank experiments. Our Insight Nanos are perfect for this application because of their compact size.

Can Voyis products be used for machine learning?

Volumetric 3D models and high-resolution stills images are cleaned, enhanced, and processed all onboard the sensors in real-time which can be fed to machine learning algorithms. 

Does water turbidity affect underwater laser scanner results?

Yes, Voyis products are optically based and range will be limited by the visibility range in the water column. Talk to our experts about whether your conditions are suitable for optical inspection.

Do your stills cameras provide image mosaicking?

All stills images automatically undistorted, light leveled, and colour corrected to enable accurate and consistent image mosaics. Image mosaicing can be provided using EIVA software, our sister company.

We provide versatile optical solutions to expand your underwater capability and enhance understanding of remote, challenging environments.
