BlueZone Congratulates Innovative Engineer Andrew Woods

BlueZone Congratulates Innovative Engineer Andrew Woods

14-Aug-2017
BlueZone Group congratulates Dr Andrew Woods of Curtin University for his naming in the 2017 list of “Australia’s Most Innovative Engineers” prepared by Engineers Australia - for the development of the Deep-water 3D Imaging System used to survey HMAS Sydney II and HSK Kormoran.  


A custom deep-water lighting and camera package was developed for the project and BlueZone was pleased to provide equipment including twenty Teledyne Bowtech LED-V-Series lights which provided 400,000 lumens of light (equivalent of 500 home light globes) into what is normally a totally dark abyss. A Teledyne Bowtech Surveyor 3DHD camera and Surveyor (2D) HD camera captured the haunting scene of the two wrecks. BlueZone Group further contributed to the project through rapid design and manufacture of cable assemblies required to support the ROV light/camera array. The BlueZone polyurethane moulding cable assembly capability was used to provide the high-quality cable assemblies for deployment to 2500m depths.


Work by Dr Woods and his team continues at Curtin HIVE (Hub for Immersive Visualisation and eReserach). The images are being used to create point cloud data and build extremely accurate 3D models of the shipwrecks. This data is overlayed with the original images to create life like and very high resolution 3D virtual reality environments.
