Webinar by the CHRSE

WEBINAR by the Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

A free webinar was hosted by the new Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe (CHRSE) on Detection of Vegetation Encroachment on Infrastructure using UAV Hyperspectral Imaging & LiDAR.

With the permission of Deutsche Bahn AG, geo-konzept flew missions using a turnkey Headwall hyperspectral & LiDAR UAV system to support this project. Data analysis and visualization work by Headwall's Dr. Carson Roberts was presented at this year's DJI AirWorks. This webinar featured some new material and an online Q&A session.

If you missed the webinar, we will be providing a link to the recording to those who registered to attend. If you did not register earlier or want more information, you can sign up here


HISUI Spaceborne Imager for ISS Launch

Thursday, December 5, 2019

UPDATE: Successful launch on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at 12:29 am Eastern US Time!

HISUI (Hyperspectral Imager SUIte) is a spaceborne hyperspectral imager developed by Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI). It contains Headwall hyperspectral technology and is scheduled for launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon-9 on December 4 from Cape Canaveral. It will be installed onboard the International Space Station (ISS).

HISUI's mission is practical application development for hyperspectral remote sensing, including oil resource exploration and synergy among optical, thermal and LiDAR instruments onboard the ISS. For example, biomass burning represents a significant emission source of carbon and other trace gasses (e.g., methane). However, it is difficult to evaluate the effect of biomass burning by using only one instrument. The severity of biomass burning might be quantified more easily by using data of the burned area and volume, fire intensity, and carbon emission estimated by utilizing several instruments onboard the ISS.
