UAV & Airborne Hyperspectral Imager

Description

 

 

 UAV & Airborne Hyperspectral Imager are designed specifically for use on unmanned aerial vehicles/systems (UAV/UAS), or remotely operated vehicles (ROV). Packed with a high-performance, miniature single-board-computer, they acquire VIS-NIR hyperspectral data with continuous spectral and spatial coverage. Operating of the OCI-UAV is automatic and requires minimal human intervention. The UAV & Airborne Hyperspectral Imager and powerful package features signification reduction in size and weight, and faster data transfer rate with automatic data capturing and processing. Extreme compactness with uncompromised performance, automatic operation and data processing make the OCI-UAV a straightforward system for effortless integration with many UAV/ROVs, for applications such as precision agriculture and remote sensing. BaySpec also provides ready-to-fly hyperspectral total solutions.

The UAV & Airborne Hyperspectral Imager are designed specifically for use on unmanned aerial vehicles/systems (UAV/UAS), or remotely operated vehicles (ROV). Packed with a high-performance, miniature single-board-computer, they acquire VIS-NIR hyperspectral data with continuous spectral and spatial coverage. Operating of the UAV & Airborne Hyperspectral Imager is automatic and requires minimal human intervention. The UAV & Airborne Hyperspectral Imager and powerful package features signification reduction in size (camera head only 8 cm x 3 cm x 3 cm with a computer 10 cm x 7.5 cm x 3 cm) and weight (approximately 0.6 lb., ~272 g), and faster data transfer rate (up to 120 fps) with automatic data capturing and processing. Unlike conventional hyperspectral imagers which rely on intensive software effort on orthorectification, the innovative design of the OCI-UAV-1000 features “True Push-broom” – imagers can move to scan at random speeds. OCI-UAV-2000 as a snapshot multispectral imager fundamentally eliminates artifacts caused by vibrations in flight. These innovations significantly reduce the requirements on UAV system, so that integration is almost effortless for many UAV/ROVs. BaySpec also provides ready-to-fly hyperspectral total solutions. Extreme compactness with uncompromised performance, automatic operation and data processing make the UAV & Airborne Hyperspectral Imager a straightforward system for applications such as precision agriculture and remote sensing.
