Short summary
This study developed a measurement system based on an unmanned aerial vehicle for determining the fuel sulfur content from the exhaust gas of ships. The proposed measurement could be used to determine the smoke plume at about 5 m from the funnel mouth of ships, providing a rapid high-precision monitoring of emission control areas for compliance with sulfur fuel content. The results show that, in general, the deviation of the estimated value for fuel sulfur content is less than 0.03 % (m/m).
