An Unmanned Aerial System of Visible Light, Infrared and Hyperspectral Cameras with Novel Signal Processing and Data Analytics

The goal of this study is to enable a routine and maintenance inspection of pipelines for critical data collection, processing, and application towards condition and risk assessments for pipeline operators. This goal will be achieved by developing and validating an integrated unmanned aerial system of visible light, infrared, and hyperspectral cameras with signal processing and data analytics.
