Project Help/Advice

I'm currently embarking upon a project that will allow me to attach a device onto a blimp for fire detection purposes. This device will have on it three major components, an image processing device, a communication link and GPS. Ultimately what I want to do is process images to detect if there is a fire, if there is one I want to send a flag + gps coordinates to the communication chip to be transmitted.

I am having trouble finding a board ready for image processing, i.e. it comes bundled with a camera, or a camera can be interfaced easily. I want to be able to process images on the fly to detect whether there is a fire or not. I have found this **broken link removed** board, and a corresponding daughter card (with camera), but the problem is that it there are no output links besides the analog headphone/line out, which makes interfacing with my communication device difficult.

I'm also trying to find a RF transceiver that will work at distances of about 9-15Km, but the best I've found so far is this **broken link removed**. Speed is not a great issue as I'm only sending a few bytes of data.

Can anyone give me some advice regarding hardware, and any potential pitfalls/problems that you forsee (that I have not).

Your help is greatly appreciated :)
