Simulation of In-Sensor Processes in the Sensor – Object System Type when Scanning the Elements of Underwater Communication Lines with a Probe Beam

The simulated processes describe the interaction between a scanning sensor and an underwater communication line element. The scanning is conducted with a probe beam. This task is relevant for the construction of automated inspection systems for these objects involving autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles. A visual inspection of underwater communications is one of the essential forms of controlling the underwater lines state. Engaging scuba divers or manned underwater vehicles to perform such inspections is cost-ineffective and in most cases rather difficult from the technical perspective, let alone certain risks for the staff. When autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles are adapted for inspection purposes, the crucial problem is to implement automated non-destructive control of the underwater communication lines.
