High Spatial Resolution SNAPSHOT



 The snapshot hyperspectral imager 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 full VIS-NIR hyperspectral data with continuous spectral and spatial coverage in simple “point-and-shoot” operations. The design features signification reduction in size and weight, and faster data transfer rate (up to 60 hyperspectral cubes per second) with automatic data capturing and processing. The Imager as a snapshot hyperspectral imager fundamentally eliminates artifacts caused by motions during flight. These innovations significantly reduce the requirements on UAV system, so that integration is almost effortless for many UAV/ROVs. Bay Spec also provides ready-to-fly hyperspectral total solutions. Extreme compactness with uncompromised performance, automatic operation and data processing make the Imager a straightforward system for applications such as precision agriculture and remote sensing.
