Abstract

Under the sponsorship of the National Science Foundation and Duke University, the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution Engineering Division is developing a 3-D laser scanning system that affords a method of collecting orientation data. This article discusses the application, method of operation, and initial design parameters of the new 3-D laser line scanner. Preliminary Finite Element Analysis results are also presented for the laser and detector housings suited for deep-ocean operation.
