Fast and precise target detection is an issue in underwater object detection applications such as search and rescue missions. Hyperspectral imaging could be effective in determining different elements in a region thanks to its ability to provide detailed spectral information. Utilization of this rich spectral information calls for the analysis of spectral differences of objects on water surface (dry/wet) and underwater conditions.
