The results of creation of new techniques and technical means that allow the use of small-sized unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in environmental monitoring of marine areas according to the MARPOL 73/78 international convention requirements are presented. The hard- and software complex developed for an oil spill recognition system with elements of artificial intelligence is described. The results of laboratory experiments on the identification of oil spills by the laser induced fluorescence (LIF) along with the technique for recording upward solar radiation spectrum are given.
