Title: UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEM ASSISTED NAVIGATIONAL SYSTEMS AND METHODS
Abstract:
Flight based infrared imaging systems and related techniques, and in particular unmanned aerial system (UAS) based systems, are provided for aiding in operation and/or piloting of a mobile structure. Such systems and techniques may include determining environmental conditions around the mobile structure with, at least, the UAS, detecting the presence of objects and/or persons around the mobile structure, and/or determining the presence of other structures around the mobile structure. Instructions for the operation of such mobile structures may then be accordingly determined responsive to such data.
