Remote technology sees through ice, snow and hot air to monitor power plants

ures of fan blades, support structures and motors. The water temperature going in and coming out of the tower will show how much heat was picked up from the power plant or off the condenser. Graduate student Matt Montanaro is working with images provided by Savannah River National Laboratory of towers at its site in South Carolina.

"We're doing mathematical modeling to try to understand how a photona unit of lightbounces around inside a complex target like a cooling tower and eventually comes out," Salvaggio says. "And when we detect that, we can actually get an accurate temperature of the surfaces inside."

The imaging problems posed by the frozen cooling lake and the cooling tower studies can be understood by mathematical modeling and through scientific simulations using a computer program initially developed at RIT in 1984.

This simulated world is akin to many popular social networking sites. It is driven by computer graphics codes that accurately predict brightness (important for comparing data from different wavelengths), and is completely governed by the rules of physics. The computer program, known as Digital Imaging and Remote Sensing Image Generation model (http://dirsig.cis.rit.edu/), provides a platform for testing scenarios based on imaging problems.
