2G Delivers Laser Scanning System to Kongsberg for Norwegian Mine Countermeasures

2G Robotics is pleased to announce the first of four ULS-500 PRO laser scanning systems has been shipped to Kongsberg Maritime for integration into the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency’s (NDMA) newly purchased HUGIN AUV’s. The acquisition signifies the Royal Norwegian Navy’s transition to autonomous systems for mine countermeasures. During operations, Hugin AUVs will be used to complete surveys of subsea environments focused specifically on locating and identifying mines. The Hugin systems enable users to conduct fast and efficient operations with zero surface visibility while additionally improving safety conditions by allowing personnel to remain outside the minefield. In peacetime, the AUVs contribute to hydrographic operations.
 

The ULS-500 PRO dynamic underwater laser scanner system will contribute to the detection, classification, and assessment of mines. 2G’s system acquires data in real-time and provides users with 3D models of targets and environments accurate to the sub-centimetre. The complete laser scanning system also includes the 2G Observer, an ultra-sensitive stills camera able to capture images at 12fps, and the 2G Nova, an LED panel designed specifically for AUV integration providing almost 1,000,000 lumens.
