Level B - Aerostat with Optical and Thermal Infrared Camera System

Aerostats or balloons are tethered generally at 500’ or below on a Responder Class OSRV, Vessel of Opportunity (VOO) or from a stationary structure on shore. These systems are designed to aid in detection and classification of oil as recoverable or non-recoverable to assist response personnel in the placement of resources.
