Abstract

The goal of this project is to aid marine biologists in their search for whales to tag and study. This is achieved by creating an audio subsystem on a quadcopter in order to extend the biologistsÂ’ search range. This audio subsystem will wirelessly transmit audio from the droneÂ’s search area back to the boat. Assuming the drone already has a camera, this payload will effectively extend the hearing and sight capabilities of the researchers on the boat.
