Abstract

AQuIS, the Autonomous Quantitative Imaging System is an active underwater imaging system which utilizes an embedded processor to acquire and process imagery in multiple fields of view, process the imagery to extract information on object location and size over time, and create compressed data reports for transmission. It is intended for use on a variety of long endurance oceanographic platforms like Argo floats, small two-person portable autonomous underwater vehicles, and gliders. AQuIS builds off of advances in digital image sensor performance, a variety of scientific image acquisition and processing techniques, and the increasing performance of embedded processors to create a low-size, weight, and power underwater imaging system for the Navy. AQuIS is intended to expand oceanographic monitoring capabilities by providing data on small-scale processes in the millimeter to meter range which is typically only collected during directed field campaigns, building long-term datasets suitable for a variety of oceanographic projects.AQuIS, the Autonomous Quantitative Imaging System is an active underwater imaging system which utilizes an embedded processor to acquire and process imagery in multiple fields of view, process the imagery to extract information on object location and size over time, and create compressed data reports for transmission.
