3D at Depth, a global technology provider of advanced subsea LiDAR systems and solutions, and Technip USA Inc., an affiliate of Technip SA of France, have signed a joint development agreement (JDA) to expand and commercialize the LiDAR technology for subsea metrology, field survey, and IRM applications.
Commonly referred to as laser scanning, LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a technology for collecting precise 3D models of subsea structures and seabed topography. It addresses the challenges of subsea data collection and imaging in deep waters for metrology survey programs and as-built field configurations.
This partnership cements the existing strong relationship between Technip and 3D at Depth. It will bring additional value to 3D at Depth’s Subsea LiDAR technology and develop new applications and best practices for the mutual benefit of both companies.
The agreement will focus on new subsea LiDAR applications, including the marriage of LiDAR and moving platforms. It will also further the development of technology and cost-efficient solutions to optimize deepwater subsea projects.
