In the event of a maritime disaster, casualties need to be found and rescued promptly. Image processing methods could help to perform automated detection from a UAV. The main current approaches make use of multispectral and thermal cameras, which can deal with lightning difficulties but are expensive and could suffer from high noise problems.
