Newton and iXBlue Demonstrate System Integration
iXBlue, one of the leading suppliers of IMU systems to the world and Newton Labs, the world’s largest and oldest manufacturer of underwater laser scanners announced today demonstrations and tests of advanced integration technology between their systems to supply the highest possible resolution of laser scanning coupled with an IMU in ROV/AUV service. Performed at Newton’s facility in Seattle, the combination of the two advanced systems and coupled with the advanced integration technology developed between the two companies; this test demonstrates the highest possible resolution in subsea laser scans.

The two companies first demonstrated the ability of the combination to operate in conjunction with industry standard navigation software. They then also proved the ability of the Newton scanners to work with the full data set from the iXBlue Phins IMU to adjust the Newton laser scans for heading, pitch and roll independent of any other software.

Newton Labs broad line of underwater laser scanners with most of the models operating both as fully internal scanners and also as fixed line scanners with IMU support brings to the subsea industry products that allow for the successful conclusion of virtually any laser scanning project. Whether it is full field scanning, pipe line scanning or high resolution corrosion and crack detection Newton’s underwater scanners have features to bring the highest resolution possible to the work. With depths to 4000 meters and resolutions to 0.1 mm, one of Newton’s underwater laser scanners can provide the data when converted to CAD models to satisfy most requirements.
