Projects: Sensors - Algorithms - Applications
- Wildfire Airborne Sensor Program (WASP)
- WASP is an aerial camera system designed for visible and thermal observations of wildfires from up to 12,000 feet in the air
- WASP Lite
- WASP Lite is a lightweight version of WASP configurable for many different applications
- Modular Imaging Spectrometer Instrument (MISI)
- MISI is a line-scanning aerial sensor for imaging targets in a large number of visible and thermal spectral bands
- GSI DGX-M
- DGX-M is a georeferenced camera system developed by LIAS and GeoSpatial Systems. Inc.
- Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR)
- LiDAR is a growing field of imaging research with many potential applications. LIAS is working with LiDAR datasets to develop state of the art processing algorithms to help environmental studies and disaster response.
- Wildfire Research
- LIAS is conducting research on wildland fire behavior with the USDA Forest Service.
- Networked Sensor Systems
- LIAS designs, builds, and deploys sensors and data logging systems for measuring and reporting in environments like lakes and forest fires.
- Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA)
- LIAS created the Data Cycle System software to handle image acquisition and processing tasks for NASA's SOFIA infrared telescope.
Imaging Algorithms and Data Products
- Information Products Laboratory for Emergency Response (IPLER)
- IPLER is an NSF-sponsored project to improve communication between remote sensing data producers and emergency response and disaster management teams.
- The Rochester Airborne Imagery Database for Education and Research (RAIDER)
- RAIDER is a new project being developed by LIAS through a NASA science grant to make aerial imaging data products available over the internet to researchers
- Data Process Management Architecture (DPMA)
- DPMA, a project developed for the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, is a software framework for processing information collected from sensor systems
LIAS actively supports image science research projects by RIT students and is engaged in co-supervision of graduate students at other institutions.
