Blue Line – Subsea Long Range Laser

Subsea Long Range Laser

The Blue Line laser is a 450nm line laser used for subsea camera & machine vision tasks. It produces a straight line with uniform intensity over a long range due to its optimal wavelength for water penetration. The laser supplies key measurement and range information to Cathx Ocean cameras enabling these cameras to perform range based auto focus and machine vision tasks such as 3D profiling, pipeline tracking and automatic object scaling.
