Abstract:

The long-range goal of this program is to develop a new imaging system for underwater use that can be deployed on an AUV. This includes a consideration of the physics of the underwater environment with respect to light propagation, the use of contemporary illumination systems, optical components, and the development of digital signal and image processing algorithms.
