WATERLOO, CANADA – March 6, 2018 – 2G Robotics, a global leader in underwater laser scanners and imaging solutions for the Offshore Energies, Geosciences and Defense industries, announced today they will be in London, UK to launch their newest lighting and imaging solution at Oceanology International 2018 at Booth H300. The show, which runs from March 13 – 15, is the world’s leading forum connecting ocean technology and marine science communities from across the globe.
The new LED Strobe Panel, named the NOVA, provides ultra-bright and even illumination enabling users to capture crisp stills images on even the fastest of AUVs. The system was originally designed for integration with HUGIN AUVs, produced by Kongsberg Maritime, and will now be released to the public for use on a wide variety of AUVs. Kongsberg was integral to the early development stages of the NOVA and has since made an initial purchase of 4 systems.
The design of the NOVA was based upon the proven 2G RAY, a single underwater LED currently being used for marine research and offshore energy inspections. The NOVA combines 36 custom-oriented LEDs to produce a powerful 450 000 Lumen output, making it the brightest lighting solution currently on the market.
Attendees to Oceanology International 2018 will be able to experience the NOVA first-hand at 2G’s booth, Booth H300. Sean Elmer, 2G Account Manager & Applications Engineer, will be presenting on 2G’s latest developments and best practices for dynamic laser mapping as part of the Underwater Imaging & Metrology Part 2 Session taking place in South Gallery Room 5 on Wednesday, March 14 at 1300. Afterwards, visitors and Media are invited to attend a small release event on Wednesday, March 14 at 1500 at Booth H300 where guests can pose questions, mingle with members of the 2G Team including CEO, Jason Gillham, and get their hands on coveted NOVA swag.
