Hazmat uas scenarios
HAZMAT UAS Scenarios

  • Explosion

    • Urban environment, casualties, line of sight obscuration, radiation

  • Search and Rescue

    • Person missing in area with limited tree cover

  • HAZMAT Release

    • Tanker truck/train incident, find and read hazmat sign

  • Water Rescue

    • Tour boat incident, locate personnel

  • Large Fire

    • Provide imagery of area to aid commander

  • Chemical/Biological Release

    • Intentional release of toxic agents, confirm location and distribution


Measures of Performance

  • Time from arrival on site to launch

  • Time from launch to arrival on-scene

  • Total time on-scene

  • Total flight time

  • Real-time imagery (video, HD, frame rate)

  • Quality of imagery (NIIRS, PSF)

  • Ability to provide both EO and IR imagery (NIIRS)

  • Ability to carry additional sensors

  • (rad/bio/chem/acoustic)


Measures of effectiveness
Measures of Effectiveness

  • Quality of information allows scene commander to make decisions:

    • NIIRS rating of imagery (measure PSF under flight conditions)

    • Time taken to produce results

    • Ability for persistent surveillance

  • Time to detect/classify/localize person in SAR scenario

  • Ability to carry a dosimeter and effectively map a radiation field

  • Time to find and effectively read HAZMAT signs on vehicles

  • Ability to map affected areas:

    • Accuracy of map

    • Time to produce map

  • IR imagery for mapping fires and SAR

  • Determine presence of chem/bio materials

  • Payload capability

Camera Characteristics

  • Modulation Transfer Function (MTF):

  • ~MTF30 = 0.43

  • Field of View ~47 degrees

  • 4280x2848 total pixels

  • JPEG format

  • This gives ~900 pixels on a face

  • target at 300m slant range

  • Contrast depends on background,

  • temperature etc.




Image processing techniques
