P09561: Visible Spectrum Imaging System


Project Summary Project Information

Create a visible spectrum imaging system with vibration damping and a microcontroller that can be mounted on a ground or air based vehicle and interfaced with the given vehicle's communication systems. The camera will be a scientific digital camera for direct control and configuration. The primary target vehicle for the system is the P09232 - UAV-Airframe B in accordance with the payload constraints of the vehicle.

The end product will be modular in the sense that other cameras can be used with minor modifications and the microcontroller, power, and vibration isolation subsystems can evolve independently.
