FARO Technologies Supports Reverse Engineering Vehicles to Upgrade Armoring

In the today’s world, individuals have more access and available opportunity to high-powered weapons. Military personnel, dignitaries, politicians, power brokers and celebrities are all susceptible to potential damage inflicted. Ground, naval, and air flight modes of transport are all potential targets. As such, the need to more heavily armor existing passenger vehicles (both commercial and military) has greatly increased. In a similar vein, recent availability of advanced materials encourage the opportunity to replace legacy armored plates with lighter weight, stronger replacement armor.

Scan Project Planning: Resolution & Scan Positions

The advances in laser scanning technology over the last five years have been impressive. Not only has the quality and quantity of the scan data we collect improved but also the size of the device and its ease of use. A while ago, a coworker of mine was commenting on how easy it was to use the FARO® Laser Scanner Focus3D.

While it is true that the operation of the FARO® Laser Scanner Focus3D has been simplified to the point where virtually anyone can be taught to operate the device, there are still challenges in successfully collecting data that will deliver the desired results.  This is what will be achieved during Scan Project Planning.
