Abstract
In this overview of the entire HoloMar system, we describe the design, development and field deployment of the fully-functioning, prototype, underwater holographic camera (HoloCam) followed by the dedicated replay facility (HoloScan) and the associated image processing and extraction of data from the holograms. The HoloCam consists of a laser and power supply, holographic recording optics and holographic plate holders, a water-tight housing and a support frame. It incorporates two basic holographic geometries, in-line and off-axis such that a wide range of species, sizes and concentrations can be recorded. After holograms have been recorded and processed thay are reconstructed in full three-dimensional detail in air in a dedicated replay facility. A computer controlled microscope, using video cameras to record the image at a given depth, is used to digitize the scene. Specially developed software extracts a binarized image of an object in its true focal plane and is classified using a neural network. The HoloCam was deployed on separate cruises in a Scottish sea loch (Loch Etive) to a depth of 100 m and over 300 holograms recorded.
