Description

The focus of this project will be on the design and implementation of two components, the UAS system, and the algorithms for the image processing used on the system. The project will be carried out in two phases:  Phase 1: Development/Implementation of the UAS platform/sensors and its algorithms for oil classification and image processing based on Ohmsett testing.  Phase 1 will involve the following sub-tasks: 1) UAS multisensory array implementation, 2) Controlled experiment (Ohmsett tank testing), and 3) Development of the oil classification and image processing algorithm. Phase 2: Assessment of the integrated system.
