The dedicated marine laser scanner for hydrographic surveying
Merlin is engineered specifically to integrate with your vessel's existing hydrographic surveying equipment. It enables you to synchronise Merlin's above-water lidar data with your below-water sensors to simultaneously produce an accurate dataset of the environment above and below the waterline.
At the heart of the system is a 250 m range laser scanner and a GPS receiver, which together provide accurately time-tagged survey data. Merlin supports the long-range lidar scanning of all above-water features associated with rivers, canals, coastlines and offshore areas. It will integrate with your vessel's existing hydrographic equipment, enabling data capture above and below the waterline simultaneously.
