C-130 Scan

A team from Autodesk & ECI laser recently scanned a USAF C-130 at the Orlando Airport.  The objective was to create a very accurate model of the aircraft that will allow virtual testing.  How do you clean an aircraft that has been contaminated by a nuclear, biological, chemical agent for example?  You can do it physically (for real) and/or you can do it virtually.  We focus on the virtual of course as it is almost always cheaper and easier.  Pete hadn’t walked up the ramp of a C-130 in 30+ years so there was a nostalgic element to this effort as well.IMG_5759 IMG_0390
