Specim introduces new compact hyperspectral camera for airborne use

Remote sensing typically refers to the aerial collection of ground information for object classification and recognition. One of the most advanced remote sensing technologies, hyperspectral imagery is used to provide invaluable geological, environmental, and intelligence data. SPECIM AISA systems produce high quality hyperspectral images, where every single measured spectrum has precise, calibrated ground coordinates.

An AISA Airborne Hyperspectral System is an elaborate integration of high quality, thoroughly tested components. For example, georeferencing accuracy is crucial in all aerial applications. For this purpose, a GPS is used to provide positions while an Inertial Navigation System, INS is used to provide the orientation. The initial trajectory (velocity, position and attitude) is obtained by integrating the output of the inertial sensors i.e. accelerometer specific forces and gyro angular rates. Lire plus …

Hyperspectral Camera and Its Application for Plant Phenotyping and Disease Detection

Use of Specim IQ Camera System as a Tool for Understanding Physiological Response of Arabidopsis thaliana Mutants Adapted in Stressed and Non-Stressed Condition Vegetation indices (VIs) are used by plant scientists to evaluate structural and functional vegetation traits quantitatively and qualitatively across different scales [24,25,51,52]. They are used for example to assess the green biomass Lire plus …

Hyperspectral Imaging Applications in Agriculture and Agro-Food Product

Qualitative Applications. One of the first studies using this technology in the agricultural sector focused on the detection of meat and bone meal in compound feedstuffs using HSI in the NIR focal plane MatrixNIR (MalvernInstruments Ltd., Malvern, UK; wavelengths 900-1,700 nm at increments of 6 nm) (59). The method was developed to enforce food legislation adopted after Lire plus …

Industrie 4.0 en quelques mots

Industrie 4.0 L’automatisation continue d’être le mot à la mode sur toutes les lèvres et c’est un mot qui ne va pas disparaître de sitôt.

Machine vision systems

Machine vision can be defined as the application of computer vision to production issues. Its principle is to equip production machines with the ability to see in order to automate quality control or process control tasks. This automation increases performance and production rates, makes production more reliable, improves product quality, ensures traceability, and guarantees safety. Lire plus …

What is Thermographic Testing?

Thermographic testing, also known as infrared inspection, is a contact-free predictive maintenance method used to detect connections defects, system overloads, deteriorated insulation, and other potential problems in electrical components. Infrared thermography is used to find areas of excess heat so that problems can be corrected before they lead to excess power usage, increased maintenance costs, Lire plus …
