Under Interagency Agreement (IAA) E13PG00031, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE)/U.S. Army Night Vision team completed a program that demonstrated a compact, lightweight, multi-spectral airborne sensor payload capable of detecting the presence of oil on water, distinguishing oil from false alarms such as kelp forests, and providing a reliable estimate of the thickness of the oil present on the water.

The purpose of this project was to advance the current MARINE SCOUT payload for algorithm development and semi-automation for (near) real-time data processing.
