This paper describes software development for an Airborne Multi-Spectral Imaging System that uses digital cameras to provide high resolution images at very high rates. The software controls the camera and the GPS receiver and allows the remote manipulation of various functions, including play, stop, and rewind. The GPS co-ordinates and the corresponding time are simultaneously recorded. The system is viable for many applications that require reasonably good resolution at low cost. Such applications include vegetation detection, oceanography, marine biology, geographical information systems, and environmental coastal science analysis. The paper presents results of two successful flight tests.
