abiss 3D



Abiss 3D is modified version of Abiss incorporating 16 spots which was developed in collaboration with Qinetiq Bincleaves. The array of image spots enables the scaling and measurement of certain non-flat surfaces, namely cylinders, spheres and cones. Examples of anticipated use of this system underwater includes the measurement of features on underwater mines, pipelines etc
