Abstract
Small unmanned aerial vehicle (SUAV) imagery geometrical quality is affected by the fact that cameras which are installed in SUAV usually are not calibrated due to the platforms size and cost constrains. To this end, image enhancements and camera calibration processes are crucial elements of the remote sensing system architectures. In this work we present experimental research involving SUAV platform equipped with autopilot and with ability to accommodate a payload up to 11 pounds. SUAV platform is currently fitted with a 12MP EOS camera, which is a subject of calibration procedures. Presented preliminary results of the research demonstrate SUAV remote sensing feasibility.
