Abstract : The document provides details of the prototype Airborne Oil Surveillance System (AOSS) design. The surveillance system consists of an x-band side-looking radar system, a 37 GHz passive microwave imaging system, a multispectral low light level TV system, a multichannel infrared line scanner, a position reference system, and a real-time processor/display console. Volume I describes the effort and results associated with the systems analysis and optimization effort. It includes investigation of annotation and navigation systems, various installation and pointing and stabilization techniques for low light level television camera, further investigation of alternative radar systems and various other areas.
