Abstract
Effective configuration management allows asset owners and EPC firms to more efficiently manage nuclear projects across the lifecycle of the facility thereby reducing overall costs. However, a key element of configuration management is accurate as-built coordinates and information for the entire facility. Current 3D capture technology cannot meet the need for cost-effective 3D as-built data because it requires extensive setups and post-processing, especially in nuclear facilities where high density and constrained volumes is the norm. TetraVue has a new 3D camera technology that can acquire the 3d coordinates from a moving platform that speeds data capture by up to 10X. The 3D as-built data can then be acquired by walking through the facility without costly setups and reduced post-processing. Following the complete demonstration of high speed 3D data acquisition in Phase II, there are many industrial applications beyond nuclear power plants for a high speed 3D camera product. Low cost 3D as-built data is essential for BIM implementation for high efficiency buildings. Law enforcement and security planning agencies routinely deploy 3D imaging tools for high profile event planning, but are currently restricted from broader application of 3D data by the current high cost and high training investment.
