To enable photogrammetry of underwater images using a miniaturized submersible explorer, a compact projection system has been developed. By registering the deformation of a known projected pattern, using a laser and a diffractive optical element (DOE), the distance to, shape and size of an object can be calculated. The DOE has been designed, using in-house developed software, and manufactured using microstructure technology. Distances to objects 45 to 30 cm away were determined to within 0.5 cm, and the developed GUI was able to recreate the shape from the measurements for easier examination of the object.
