We’re doing it again!
This time, three universities collaborated to collect Multispectral TruePix™ data:
- Northern Arizona University
- Nova Scotia Community College
- the University of Southern Mississippi
QPS has also been instrumental in making the R2Sonic Multispectral Water Column Challenge possible, by developing the appropriate tool to process Multispectral TruePix™ data and by offering free licenses to participants.
Similar to the enhanced seafloor discrimination capabilities identified through the first R2Sonic Challenge, for the 2019 R2Sonic Multispectral Water Column Challenge, we requested submissions exploring new and improved identification, differentiation and characterization of targets in the water column based on the responses observed at different frequencies.
The winner was going to be announced at the GeoHab conference, and as the event has been rescheduled until May 2021, we are taking advantage of it to extend the R2Sonic Challenge.
Registrations are now open again. Research papers will be due in conjunction with abstracts to the GeoHab conference, which is estimated to be in February 2021.
