3D at Depth using its in-house subsurface LiDAR technology is able to offer significant time savings on an ever-expanding use case within the Nuclear Power Reactors. Range and measurement repeatability over camera-based solutions.

Current use case highlights
  • Vessel Foreign Object Search and Recognition
  • Fuel transfer system modeling and measurement 
  • Outer core barrel inspections
  • Former baffle inspections
  • Baffle bolt inspections
  • Decommissioning block volumetric measurements
Fuel assembly gap measurements - scanned the entire core after on-load from ~ 23 ft range for gap measurements and developed a semi-automated tool for calculating all gap measurements within ~ 20 minutes of taking the data (which in itself takes ~ 25 minutes).  An attractive feature is the output is a point cloud in a single file that can be easily accessed and analyzed at any later point in time (as opposed to searching through hours of video).   This data can be compared over time to track degradation or damage to underwater assets.

Core plate FOSAR - scanned the core plate right after offload and compared it to the scan prior to on-load a few days later for change detection.  Objects detected and analyzed resulted in fast inspections to be borate crystals
