SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2014 — An ultracompact version of its precursor, the OCI-UAV hyperspectral imager from BaySpec acquires VIS-NIR hyperspectral data with continuous spectral and spatial coverage. The OCI-UAV features automatic data capture and processing, with a frame rate up to 120 fps. Unlike conventional hyperspectral imagers, the OCI-UAV does not rely on intensive software efforts for orthorectification. The camera is designed for use on unmanned aerial vehicles and systems, remotely operated vehicles and other devices. Applications include precision agriculture, airborne mini UAV/ROV, remote sensing, environmental studies, mining, petroleum exploration and security and defense, among others.
