Abstract:

This document describes a small area search and rescue model which has been programmed for use in the detection and recovery of target drones and similar objects which have landed in the Puerto Rico operating area. The model uses currents produced by a hydrodynamical-numerical model and real time winds as the driving forces. The capability to compute pollutant drift from an instantaneous release point is included, as well as the computation of the resultant currents produced by different wind fields. The model is readily adaptable to different areas and its time step and leeway codes can be tuned to fit the needs of the user.
