ADC Snap Tetracam Hyperspectral Sensor

Hyperspectral filming and analysis systems are techniques with great potential for environmental analysis. Hyperspectral remote sensing systems are based on the physical property that objects emit or reflect radiation at different frequencies, apart from visible light, with variable intensities as a function of their chemical-physical characteristics.

Similar to other airborne detection systems, such as photogrammetric cameras or LIDAR systems, which can be integrated with this system to provide complete information about the survey area, hyperspectral sensors are normally used together with GPS-inertial positioning systems for geo-referencing of the images produced.


Our hyperspectral camera captures images at speeds comparable to industrial equipment, guaranteeing maximum speed and precision during overflights.

Images in motion are not distorted, so, acquisition is possible at lower altitudes and higher speeds-
