Multi-band aerial photography was acquired during specified conditions of cloud cover and reduced visibility considered to be representative of a nearly infinite range of sub-optimum weather conditions. Basic techniques were derived from an earlier study designed to yield strategic spill prevention surveillance. Results indicated that only one film tested, a high sensitivity color positive film, provided consistently interpretable results. Rapid access techniques were also evaluated leading to recommendations for a tactical system providing a capability for both real-time and near real-time system update during sub-optimum aerial photographic conditions.
