Agriculture and environmental protection Drone with Hyperspectral Imaging

Hyperspectral Imaging gibt es jetzt als Bildverarbeitungstechnik für Drohnen, und zwar vom Hersteller Headwall Photonics im Vertrieb von Polytec.
Hyperspectral Imaging is now available as an image processing technique for drones from Headwall Photonics, a Polytec distributor.

Polytec, manufacturer of optical measurement technology, has introduced a complete drone solution for remote sensing using Hyperspectral Imaging.

The ready-to-use system from US manufacturer Headwall Photonics is equally suitable for precision agriculture, environmental protection, forestry and surface mining. It is based on a professional multi-copter with adapted gimbal for image stabilization. Integral components are also position sensors for flight parameter control, VNIR or SWIR hyperspectral image sensors and software for flight planning, post-processing, image correction, analysis and linkage with geodata.
Depending on the application, the system is equipped with a nano-hyperspec VNIR sensor for the visible and near-infrared wavelength range or with a micro-hyperspec sensor for SWIR, i.e. the short-wave infrared range. An additional lidar module can be integrated as an option.

Parameters such as vegetation indices can be recorded at the touch of a button. However, other parameters such as plant infestation by diseases or pests can also be determined using suitable models.

Polytec delivers the system complete in a transport case including training and one year of technical support. The company offers exclusive consulting, evaluation, sales and service for the German-speaking countries and the Benelux countries.
