Abstract
THIS PROJECT APPLIES SEVERAL INNOVATIVE CONCEPTS FOR MODIFYING AN EXISTING AIRBORNE MULTISPECTRAL SCANNER TO MAKEIT CAPABLE OF MEASURING OCEAN BIOMASS IN SUPPORT OF THE NASAGLOBAL BIOLOGY EFFORT. PROVEN FEASIBILITY OF THIS APPROACH WOULD PERMIT ACCOMPLISHMENT OF NASA OBJECTIVES WITHOUT THE NEED FOR AN EXPENSIVE AND LONG-TERM DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. THE RESEARCH INCLUDES THE ANALYSIS OF EACH OF THE SPECIAL AIRBORNE SCANNERS DEVELOPED FOR NASA TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF MODIFYING THE DESIGN OF ONE TO ACCOMPLISH THE OCEAN BIOMASS TASK. THE ANALYSIS RESULTS IN A FINAL REPORT ESTABLISHING FEASIBILITY AND SPECIFYING THE WORK NECESSARY TO PERFORM THE MODIFICATION AS WELL AS ESTABLISHING THE LIKELY PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MODIFIED SCANNER.
