This is a fun story about how a random trip to the beach turned into a 3D-scanning session which prompted a call to the police and eventually ‘the Royal Navy bomb disposal unit from the Scottish Borders’ to investigate an unknown piece of debris in a part of the world where sea mines are more common than you’d expect – complete with viewable 3D model!
Having wandered through the golf course to access the beach and scanning everything with the thermal equipment, a suspicious thermal signature was seen on our T420 thermal camera. It was odd as there shouldn’t have been anything like that there. So thought I’d take a look. Having climbed down the dunes, fought through the long grass I made it to the bottom of a small inlet and was greeted by a 75% buried round lump of metal. It was rusty and big, the thermal camera had picked up something I thought to myself.
