Collaboration Specim and Airborne Technologies

September 21, 2009 SPECIM, Spectral Imaging Ltd. (Oulu, Finland), a leading provider of Hyperspectral Imaging sensors and Airborne Technologies GmbH (Wiener Neustadt, Austria) have agreed about collaboration which aims at providing the airborne remote sensing market with turnkey multiple sensor platforms.

Specim’s role in the collaboration is to provide high performance hyperspectral sensors for the platforms. Spectral information is used to categorize and analyze target and its condition in great detail in growing range of applications, inluding environmental monitoring, forestry, farming, and geological surveys.

Airborne Technologies’s integrates hyperspectral imaging with other sensors, like a laser scanner and digital camera. Installation can take place on different kinds of platforms. Fusions of hyperspectral imaging with topographic information from the laser scanner is becoming a powerful technigue in forest mapping, land use and urban planning, and prompt monitoring of large scale natural disasters or guiding the rescue operations.

“Through this collaboration, SPECIM and Airborne Technologies can supply their customers with complete multi-sensor platforms, as well as training and support in their operation. The customer will be immediately ready for efficient data collection and application work” said Timo Hyvärinen, Managing Director of SPECIM.
