ATTIREOIS supports light aerial vehicle deployment and collects timely and cost-effective multispectral photogrammetric data products. With its real time GIS-ready centimeter level resolution VNIR and decimeter level resolution LWIR multispectral images with 0.02 K temperature measurement resolution. It is capable of performing following commercial applications: High-resolution aerial thermal mapping over a wide variety of industrial, commercial, and residential areas to detect thermal anomalies, including insulation deterioration of a powerline and rooftop thermal leakage; Thermal and pollution effluents from mining and other industrial operations such as quarries, paper mills, and power plants; Rapid disaster and emergency response Surveillance and reconnaissance Forest fires and residual warm spots; Land resource management; Law enforcement; Aerial deer and seabird counts; Identify mosquito-breeding areas Monitor vegetation water consumption by mapping evapotranspiration at high resolution Precision agriculture, crop growing status monitoring, and vegetation specie mapping.
ATTIREOIS is a portable airborne instrument that provides optical and boresight calibrated, precisely and directly georeferenced, and error-estimated surface emissive and solar reflective LWIR/VNIR multispectral images. By approximating 5 fixed wavelength bands of Landsat ETM+ sensor at very high resolution, it has near term NASA commercial applications of: 1) Underflight satellites to support satellite measurement calibration and validation observations; 2) Location and mapping of water-harboring subsurface caves and new sources of spring waters in the southwestern United States (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah); 3) Deployment in a UAV/Airship for either field-expedient or persistent launch range surveillance/intrusion data collection; 4) Mapping of river, river delta, and coastal water thermal gradients, color gradients, and pollution. Its long term NASA applications include: 1) Exploration of Martian water-harboring subsurface caves; 2) Mapping the extent of certain Moon/Mars surface resources and identifying promising outpost/science sites and traversable terrains.
