100 Earth-Shattering Remote Sensing Applications

Remote sensing as a technique is finding more and more acceptance beyond early military and agricultural applications. Take a look at this intriguing list published in GISGeography. We can help you with many of these applications. Related to list item number 2, we recently introduced our new LiDAR Tools software package to support a lightweight LiDAR add-on that can be incorporated onto our integrated UAV payload.

Hyperspectral Imaging to Catch Poultry Production Line Pollution

The November 2018 issue of Poultry Digital magazine features a "Foreign Intelligence" article (pages 10-13) on how imaging technology can reduce or eliminate poultry production line pollution. Headwall hyperspectral cameras can detect the spectral "fingerprint" of contamination such as fecal matter or the hallmarks of diseases such as septicemia and toxemia.

Hyperspectral & LiDAR: The Gold Standard

As remote sensing evolves, users across all applications are discovering the value of adding LiDAR instruments to a hyperspectral payload. First, instruments of all types are getting smaller and lighter. Second, UAVs are more capable than ever in terms of carrying capacity and airborne stability. Finally, users across agriculture, minerals and mining, and environmental research can now collect a full suite of useful data at one time. With powerful GPS/IMU devices to tie the data streams together, a completely integrated hyperspectral-LiDAR airborne package is now the 'gold standard' for many remote sensing missions.

Demonstrating Hyperspectral Imaging in Amsterdam!

In Amsterdam this week, more than 40 attendees at the IEEE SpectroExpo-WHISPERS conference have participated in a field test of Headwall's Nano-Hyperspec® VNIR sensor. VNIR is shorthand for 'Visible-Near-Infrared,' and the sensor collects image data from 400-1000nm across 270 spectral bands and 640 spatial pixels.

Airborne Integration Considerations

Our customers come to us with missions that range from crop disease detection to infrastructure inspection, from environmental monitoring to pollution analysis. Hyperspectral imaging sensors provide a wealth of high-resolution data in the near-infrared and shortwave infrared ranges...beyond human vision. But we see an increasing level of integration occurring where hyperspectral rides alongside instruments such as thermal, LiDAR, and GPS/IMUs. The data streams coming from each instrument need to be synthesized ('data fusion') but the instruments themselves need to be positioned and located on the UAV to assure a balanced airborne package.

XPONENTIAL AUVSI

Christopher Van Veen | Mon, May 07, 2018 | Remote SensingUAV

Each year at a different United States location, the XPONENTIAL show brings together technologies that improve some of the most fascinating missions across both commercial and government/defense applications. The just-concluded show in Denver was no exception, and you can clearly see the evolution of the event over the years.

Initially known as AUVSI, the conference obviously showcases airborne platforms. Now, the focus of 'XPONENTIAL' is as much about payloads and instruments as it is on the latest in drone technology. What we hear in our own business we heard at the show: "I have challenges that drones and imaging sensors can solve, but I need help getting everything integrated."
