Airborne remote sensing has the characteristics of flexible action, wide coverage area and high space resolution, and the hyper-spectral scanner is of very high spectral resolution with more than two hundreds channels in the visible light domain, containing large amount of information, which has tremendous potential in marine application. In 2005, an airborne hyper spectral system AISA+ made by Specim Co. Finland has been tested onboard the Chinese Marine Surveillance Plane. After experimentation and processing with ENVI and some own algorithms, sea surface suspended material is retrieved plus other water quality parameters, showing its application in ocean remote sensing. In this paper, we describe the system futures and experimentation, and then explain the performing of data processing. Some products, such as sea surface suspended material concentration has been obtained. The preliminary result shows that hyper spectral system AISA+ is of much use for marine surveillance, but more technologies are required to develop for monitoring water quality by AISA+.
