Abstract:

Airborne Technologies, Inc. Phase I effort will be to design and demonstrate the feasibility of developing a low-cost, marinized Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) that can be operated easily from small or large vessels and is capable of reliable and repeatable operations in an ocean environment. The UAS will be utilized for the detecting and tracking of marine debris, sea-life or other objects in the open ocean. Using anomaly detection software, the UAS will be able to locate items in the water and either autonomously or thru remote operator input, mark the location of the anomaly by deploying a small tracking buoy with a satellite modem. The Phase I study will prepare us for a future Phase II program of building and testing the Unmanned Aerial System for operations from a small vessel in an ocean environment.
