Abstract:

Our objective is to focus on three areas of application research and transitions. First, we will transition our machine learning-based algorithms and computer code for the determination of bathymetry, bottom type, and water column Inherent Optical Properties from HyperSpectral Imagery HSI into a deliverable Message Passing Interface MPI program that may be easily used by other research and military operators. Second, we will use this program to determine the impacts of the granularity of the classification database on the inversion bathymetry, bottom type, and IOPs. Third, we will move beyond the use of single pixel HSI inversion to the use of spatial context-filtering to remove pixel-to-pixel noise inherent in the HSI data.
