Title: Systems and methods for in situ assessment of mooring lines

Abstract

A system can include at least one measuring device that captures and collects multiple two-dimensional images of a mooring line disposed in water. The system can also include a mooring line assessment system that includes a controller communicably coupled to the at least one measuring device. The controller can receive the two-dimensional images from the at least one measuring device. The controller can also generate a three-dimensional reconstruction of the mooring line based on the two-dimensional images. The controller can further present the three-dimensional reconstruction to a user. The two-dimensional images can be captured and the recommendation can be made while the mooring line is in situ.
