Section II: Object of the design contest/description of the project

II.1.1)Title attributed to the design contest/project by the contracting authority/entity:
Oil Spill Detection and Mapping in Low Visibility and Ice.
II.1.2)Short description:
Remote Sensing is a critical element for an effective response to marine oil spills. Timely response to an oil spill requires rapid reconnaissance of the spill site to determine its exact location, extent of oil (particularly the thickest portion of the slick) and verifying predictions of the movement and fate of oil slicks at sea. The ability to reliably detect and map oil trapped in, under, on, or among ice is a challenge affecting all aspects of response to oil spills in ice. Long periods of darkness during the ice season and frequent periods of low visibility offshore at any time related to fog, low cloud cover and blowing snow reduce the effectiveness a currently available sensors for tracking arctic spills. There is a continued need to develop the technology that will reliably detect oil under ice and snow throughout the ice season. Achieving these goals will require a flexible combination of new and existing sensors and advanced processing techniques. The duration of this project is envisioned to be 4 months.
