Final Flight / Science Report
Due: 12/12/2014
The HAVEC Payload proposes to detect and analyze vegetation health along the H.A.S.P flight path by using visible and near infrared imaging systems. The collected data will be analyzed for geographical and meteorological related factors contributing to plants health state. Further studies of the detected environmental factors will be done with future payloads. The images will be examined locally to determine a range for vegetation health within smaller regions. The photographs will be consolidated into a mosaic showcasing the H.A.S.P flight path and vegetation health state along the American Southwest. The mosaic and data analysis will be compared to similar missions and it will serve as a proof of concept for future studies of vegetation health using near infrared imaging instruments.
