CLIENT / PARTNER
The goal of this project was to provide the Air Force with a Proof-of-Concept for an automated and inexpensive methodology for early detection of tree disease outbreaks, including bark beetles, across thousands of forested acres at bases across the country.
This enables targeting and mitigation of disease outbreaks before large areas of trees begin to die, thus helping to control wildfires, mudslides, and flooding.
Completed as part of USAF SBIR Phase II (2019 – 2021). Reducing cost and time for environmental monitoring with machine learning.
