Abstract : This report summarizes the research performed in the design and specification of the computer system architecture and software required for the Multispectral Data Processing System (MDPS). The objective of the MDPS is the efficient processing of large volumes of digital bathymetric data (collected by remote multispectral sensor) representing depths and bottom features of shallow water coastal areas, navigable channels and bays, and offshore shallow reefs. The MDPS includes the data recording and processing portions of an airborne active/passive bathymetric system which can be used by the Defense Mapping Agency for the production and maintenance of navigation charts. Also discussed are Hardware and Software Requirements; Cost Analysis; and Error Analysis.
