Abstract
In Phase II, Vexcel Corporation proposes to adapt and expand its existing closerange photogrammetric process to the unique applications of shipbuilding construction. The enhancements examined in the feasibility study of Phase Iwill be added to the FotoG system to create new prototype software of particular interest to shipbuilders. This technology will have immediate benefits in the MARITECH ASE major initiative areas of Shipyard Production, Systems Technologies (simulation),and Facilities and Tooling. The process (using randomly acquired handheld photography) allows for highly accurate 3D measurements and 3D models(scene reconstruction) to be extracted from digital photography with no field targeting of points of interest. High accuracy (and automated element extraction)is obtained through the integration of extensive image processing capabilities. Technical objectives for Phase II include supporting the common shipbuilding applications of Run-To-Suit Pipe Modeling, Construction Verification, andDimensional Control Feedback. Also, (optionally) supporting the CATIA CADsystem and the generation of triangulated surface nets.
