Abstract
We describe the choice of parameters involved in designing a system in which an unmanned airborne vehicle using a camera relays image data to a nearby ship where a human, possibly with the help of a recognition system, is alerted to the possibility of a collision with a whale or other large marine mammal. A key constraint is that the system be inexpensive and, where possible, realized from off-the-shelf equipment.
