AMS Technologies Presents World’s Smallest Hyperspectral Imager
Our partner BaySpec, a leading provider of miniaturized spectral engines, introduces the OCI-UAV™, a new ultra-compact version of its award winning OCI-Series Hyperspectral Imagers, OCI is a phonetic spelling of "All Seeing Eye"
Remote Sensing with µUAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles)
Remote sensing has a wide range of applications in many different fields, including ground survey and monitoring, precision agriculture, terrestrial characterizing, hazard assessment, natural resource management etc. BaySpec's OCI™-UAV hyperspectral imagers are ultra-compact, easily deployable, high-performance hyperspectral cameras designed specifically for use on small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or other platforms, to monitor the details of spatial, temporal, and spectral representation of objects.
Unlike conventional hyperspectral imagers, which rely on intensive software efforts for orthorectification, the OCI-UAV-1000™ features innovative "True Push-broom" where the imager can move to scan at random speeds. The OCI-UAV-2000™ is a snapshot multispectral imager that fundamentally eliminating artifacts caused by vibrations in flight. These advancements significantly reduce requirements on UAV/ROV integration.
Operating the OCI-UAV™ is automatic and requires minimal human set-up. The OCI-UAV™ design features signification reduction in size (camera head only 8 cm x 6 cm x 6 cm weighing approximately 0.4 lbs, ~180 g), with a computer, and faster data transfer rate (up to 120 fps) with automatic data capturing and processing.
BaySpec also provides ready-to-fly hyperspectral total solutions. Augmenting the extreme compactness with uncompromised performance, automatic operation and data processing make the OCI-UAV™ a straightforward system for applications, such as: precision agriculture, airborne mini UAV/ROV, remote sensing, ground survey, forest survey, environmental studies, law enforcement, forensics, security and defense, mining and geology, oil and gas exploration, ocean monitoring, among others.
BaySpec will be demonstrating the OCI-UAV at SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco, February 10-12th, booth #711.
