Novel Hyperspectral Imager for Airborne Applications
BaySpec Inc.Request Info
BaySpec's OCI series of hyperspectral imagers represent a new class of imaging sensors specifically designed to address image quality and ease-of-use issues in legacy hyperspectral imaging systems. Developing the most extensive product line on the market today, BaySpec's line-up offers flexibility in selecting a wavelength range, spectral resolution and spatial resolution tailored for your applications. Eight different models with versatile configurations cover the 400-1700nm region, and range from 8 bands of color up to 220 spectral bands.
BaySpec’s hyperspectral cameras are the smallest and lightest of their class. The cameras are designed for use on unmanned aerial vehicles/systems (UAV/UAS) and offer faster data transfer rates (up to 120 fps) as well as automatic data capturing/processing. Packed with a high-performance, miniature single-board-computer, they acquire VIS-NIR hyperspectral data with continuous spectral and spatial coverage. Operation of the OCI Series is automatic and requires minimal human supervision. Unlike conventional hyperspectral imagers that rely on intensive software effort for geo-correction or ortho-rectification, the innovative design of the OCI-UAV-1000, for example, features “true" push-broom imaging and can scan at random speeds. The goal of fundamentally eliminating artifacts caused by pitch, roll and vibrations in flight has thus been realized by the OCI Series. These innovations significantly reduce the requirements on UAV users so that integration is comparatively effortless.
One newly developed camera, the OCI-M, is an 8-band push-broom multispectral camera with a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface and serves as the most cost effective alternative for applications not requiring continuous spectral bands. Additionally, BaySpec also provides ready-to-fly hyperspectral solutions for any remote sensing application, made right here in the USA.
Featuring extreme compactness with uncompromised performance, and fully automatic operation, BaySpec’s OCI imagers allow effortless adoption in many applications from precision agriculture, online material sorting, food inspection, and geospatial imaging to in-vivo biomedical imaging.
