摘要
(US9140785) A method for detecting an oil mass covered by ice includes collecting alert data at a first probability of detection using an airborne platform moved about a search area above the ice.  An alert area having a likelihood of an oil mass covered by the ice is determined based upon the alert data.  Confirmation data is collected at a second probability of detection higher than the first probability of detection using a ground platform moved over the alert area.  An oil mass covered by the ice is detected based upon the confirmation data.

(US9140785) That which is claimed is: 1.  A method for detecting an oil mass covered by ice comprising: collecting alert data at a first probability of detection using at least one airborne platform moved about a search area above the ice;   using a first data processing unit for determining an alert area having a likelihood of an oil mass covered by the ice based upon the alert data;   collecting confirmation data at a second probability of detection higher than the first probability of detection using a ground platform moved over the alert area; and   using a second data processing unit for detecting an oil mass covered by the ice based upon the confirmation data. 2. The method according to claim 1 wherein collecting the alert data comprises using at least one unmanned airborne platform. 3. The method according to claim 1 wherein collecting the confirmation data comprises using at least one unmanned ground platform. 4. The method according to claim 1 wherein collecting the alert data comprises using at least one unmanned airborne platform; wherein collecting the confirmation data comprises using at least one unmanned ground platform; and further comprising remotely controlling the unmanned airborne platform and unmanned ground platform from a remote control station. 5. The method according to claim 1 wherein collecting the alert data comprises collecting synthetic-aperture radar data. 6. The method according to claim 1 wherein collecting the alert data comprises collecting circular polarization diversity synthetic-aperture radar data. 7. The method according to claim 1 wherein collecting the confirmation data comprises collecting a plurality of different types of confirmation data. 8. The method according to claim 7 wherein the plurality of different types of confirmation data comprises wideband impulse radar data, acoustic sensor data, and light detection and ranging (LIDAR) data. 9. The method according to claim 1 wherein collecting the confirmation data comprises collecting phase shift data. 10. The method according claim 1 wherein the first probability of detection is less than or equal to 80%; and wherein the second probability of detection is greater than or equal to 99%. 11. The method according to claim 1 wherein the search area comprises a predetermined area around an oil extraction site. 12. The method according to claim 1 wherein the search area comprises a predetermined area around an oil pipeline site. 13. A method for detecting an oil mass covered by ice using alert data collected at a first probability of detection using at least one airborne platform moved about a search area above the ice, the method comprising: using a first data processing unit for determining an alert area having a likelihood of an oil mass covered by the ice based upon the alert data;   collecting confirmation data at a second probability of detection higher than the first probability of detection using a ground platform moved over the alert area; and   using a second data processing unit for detecting an oil mass covered by the ice based upon the confirmation data. 14. The method according to claim 13 wherein collecting the confirmation data comprises using at least one unmanned ground platform. 15. The method according to claim 13 wherein collecting the confirmation data comprises using at least one unmanned ground platform; and further comprising remotely controlling the unmanned ground platform from a remote control station. 16. The method according to claim 13 wherein collecting the confirmation data comprises collecting a plurality of different types of confirmation data. 17. The method according to claim 16 wherein the plurality of different types of confirmation data comprises wideband impulse radar data, acoustic sensor data, and light detection and ranging (LIDAR) data. 18. The method according to claim 13 wherein collecting the confirmation data comprises collecting phase shift data. 19. A system for detecting an oil mass covered by ice comprising: at least one airborne platform configured to collect alert data at a first probability of detection as the at least one airborne platform moves about a search area above the ice;   a first data processing unit configured to determine an alert area having a likelihood of an oil mass covered by the ice based upon the alert data;   at least one ground platform configured to collect confirmation data at a second probability of detection higher than the first probability of detection as said ground platform moves over the alert area; and   a second data processing unit configured to detect an oil mass covered by the ice based upon the confirmation data. 20. The system according to claim 19 wherein said at least one airborne platform comprises at least one unmanned airborne platform. 21. The system according to claim 19 said at least one ground platform comprises at least one unmanned ground platform. 22. The system according to claim 19 wherein said at least one airborne platform comprises at least one unmanned airborne platform; wherein said at least one ground platform comprises at least one unmanned ground platform; and further comprising a remote control station configured to remotely control said unmanned airborne platform and said unmanned ground platform. 23. The system according to claim 19 wherein said at least one airborne platform is configured to collect the alert data as synthetic-aperture radar data. 24. The system according to claim 19 wherein said at least one airborne platform is configured to collect the alert data as circular polarization diversity synthetic-aperture radar data. 25. The system according to claim 19 wherein said at least one ground platform is configured to collect the confirmation data as a plurality of different types of confirmation data. 26. The system according to claim 25 wherein the plurality of different types of confirmation data comprises wideband impulse radar data, acoustic sensor data, and light detection and ranging (LIDAR) data. 27. The system according to claim 19 wherein said at least one ground platform is configured to collect the confirmation data as phase shift data.
