OULU, Finland, June 17, 2014 — Designed with high spectral resolution, the aisaIBIS hyperspectral imager from Specim measures the fluorescence of plants to analyze health and vitality from photosynthetic activity. Built for ground and airborne measurement, the aisaIBIS measures the fluorescence signal by applying the Fraunhofer Line Depth Method. The device meets the high spectral resolution requirement of 0.25 nm, a high dynamic range and high signal-to-noise ratio. The aisaIBIS produces data for the development of fluorescence retrieval methods, and investigates the quantitative accuracy of fluorescence measurement. The device works as a precursor to a potential satellite instrument that may be able to provide global maps of vegetation fluorescence.
