Description

Real-time data processing is critical to decision making. Although various remote sensors to detect oil slicks have been developed, the advanced, processing/analyzing data and imagery requires significant time (at least several hours to days). The purpose of this project is to develop/advance algorithm for (Near) Real-Time Data Processing and Mapping for Commercially available Off The Shelf (COTS) Remote Sensors to detect oil and measure slick thickness. 
 
 

Latest progress update

The contractor has been developing and testing automated algorithms in their laboratory for near real-time data and imagery processing. Field testing for Summer 2021 will be discussed and scheduled in early 2021.
