3D at Depth Expands US Operations and Opens New Location in Perth, Australia

BOULDER, Colo., June 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D at Depth (3D), a global provider of advanced subsea LiDAR systems and solutions, announced today the official opening of a new office in Perth, Australia. Under the name of 3D at Depth, Asia Pacific PTY LTD; the new location will support the company's current Asia Pacific customer base and help cultivate new opportunities in the region. The new office will be managed by Mr. Adam Lowry, who brings a wealth of industry hydrographic experience to the team. Mr. Lowry'sleadership and project management skills include prior work for Fugro, Australia, and Seabed Geosolutions (A Fugro/CGG Joint Venture). He was also formerly the lead author for the search for MH370 tender and was a project manager for specific aspects of the program. As Managing Director – Asia Pacific, Lowry will facilitate the growth strategy for the region and focus on serving the offshore oil and gas, exploration and production market.

In addition to the new Australian location, the company has expanded manufacturing and production operations through a 5,500 sq. ft. facility located in the Boulder, Colorado headquarters, while maintaining its original 2,500 sq. ft. facility within the same business park. The state-of-the-art facility will allow the design, manufacturing, measurement and assembly of all sensors in one location for better quality and process control. In addition, the new plant has a lab environment outfitted with a class 1000 optical clean room, a 40 ft. test tank and a variety of measurement, assembly and manufacturing tools. The consolidation of engineering, design and manufacturing into one location will leverage in-house expertise across the production and delivery value chain for greater innovation and efficiency.

"Our LiDAR systems and solutions are built around trying to solve the challenges of subsea data collection and imaging survey programs. Using LiDAR over other 3D imaging methods such as acoustic or optical measurement methods greatly increases the speed, repeatability and resolution. We develop our solutions to help clients build and maintain their underwater assets in a more efficient, safe and an environmentally friendly manner." States 3D CEO, Carl Embry. "With our new office in the Asia Pacific region and under Adam's guidance we can focus our sales efforts in the region and broaden our service business lines to better serve our current clients."

3D at Depth was founded in 2009, using LiDAR sensor technology to address data collection challenges (in terms of range, accuracy, field of view, depth, and integration) faced by the subsea construction, survey and inspection industry. With the SL1 & SL2 and the integration of software and hardware, the 3D LiDAR platform now services oil and gas, commercial, government and defense markets through the world. Subsea LiDAR solutions are proving to be cost effective, have better accuracy, and are reducing the cost of survey and vessel time.
