A small 3D scanning device called the Mold Impression Laser Tool or (MILT) optically scans surfaces for flaws and sends the resultant data to a computer via a wireless connection.
The Ames High-Speed 3D Scanner has been synergized with a commercial robot arm to create a large area robot scanner.
The ArcJet 3D Scanner allows researchers to generate complete 3D digital models of thermal protection material samples before and after reentry condition simulations.
The Ames High-Speed 3D Scanner creates high-resolution 3D maps of planetary terrain for accurate instrument placement. It also has excellent near to mid-range 3D vision for various robotic applications such as collision avoidance.
