Title
(EN) SCANNING APPARATUS AND SCANNING METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL DE BALAYAGE ET PROCÉDÉ DE BALAYAGE
Abstract
(EN) The present invention concerns a scanning apparatus (1) and method for scanning a sub-sea structure (2). The apparatus comprises a scanner array (3) and a guide for defining a direction of travel of the scanner array from a start position to a finish position. A drive means (10) is provided for moving the scanner array from the start position to the finish position and the array comprises a plurality of sensors arranged in a common plane that extends substantially orthogonally to the guide direction of travel.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil de balayage (1) et un procédé de balayage pour balayer une structure sous-marine (2). L’appareil comprend un réseau de dispositifs de balayage (3) et un guide pour définir une direction de déplacement du réseau de dispositifs de balayage d’une position initiale à une position finale. Un moyen d’entraînement (10) est disposé pour déplacer le réseau de dispositifs de balayage de la position initiale à la position finale et le réseau comprend une pluralité de capteurs agencés dans un plan commun qui s’étend de façon sensiblement orthogonale à la direction de déplacement du guide.
