Underwater 3D Data Collection Public

Each year, thousands of pounds of marine litter are lost at sea. This marine litter not only causes harm to the aquatic ecosystem, but makes up billions of dollars of lost revenue. With methods of 3D data collection becoming cheaper and more prevalent, a solution to recover lost items is more possible than ever. This report outlines our contribution to solving this problem by providing a detailed analysis of a constructed prototype that utilizes sonar in conjunction with a visualization program, an amplification circuit, and a mobile flotation platform to map the bottom of a water body. Ideally, man-made discrepancies discovered by this device will alert the end user, allowing for them to continually manage the amount of marine litter that ends up lost, and prevent it from getting larger.
