Abstract:

Our research is directed toward utilization of modern optoelectronic technology for real-time 3-D mapping of the ocean floor. We strive to construct a compact instrument ROBOT capable of real-time imaging and classification of man-made and natural objects in a wide range of marine and freshwater environments. We expect that this work will have relevance to the in-water investigation and surveillance needs of branches of the U.S. Military, U.S. Intelligence agencies, as well as state and local law-enforcement agencies.
