FITCHBURG, Mass., and TASMANIA, Australia, Jan. 23, 2013 — The TerraLuma project at the University of Tasmania has partnered with Headwall Photonics Inc. to bring hyperspectral technology to its fleet of unmanned aircraft systems.

TerraLuma will place Headwall’s Micro-Hyperspec sensor aboard its multi-rotor, purpose-built aerial platform SkyJib, from Droidworx of Waikato, New Zealand, to map and monitor vegetation in remote locations. Headwall’s sensor is a compact device that meets the payload restrictions of these small airborne systems while providing the spatial and spectral resolution needed to map the environment in better detail than other methods.

“Our move to hyperspectral fits with our goal to provide the research community with clear, actionable data that can be captured, managed and delivered faster than ever,” said Dr. Arko Lucieer, team leader for the TerraLuma Research Group.

“Remote sensing utilizing hyperspectral instruments aboard hand-launched platforms represents a high-growth area of research,” said Headwall CEO David Bannon.
