Marine Lidar 2D – MERLIN

MERLIN, single beam 360° Lidar system for terrestrial and marine mapping

The MERLIN marine Lidar, from the British manufacturer Renishaw, is specially designed for use on all types of vessel, making it possible to combine long distance precision laser measurements with bathymetric measurements, in order to provide synchronised 3D point clouds under the water (supplied by the SMF) and on the surface. 

The main bathymetric software programmes accept data from one or even two Lidar MERLIN sensors for optimal coverage. This compatibility has the advantage of adding a high performance Lidar function to traditional hydrographic measurement systems, without putting into question the established measurement chain.
