Hyperspectral Imaging Sensor

Specim, Spectral Imaging is launching a high-resolution hyperspectral imaging sensor with exceptional performance and the dimensions required for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and other challenging applications. The V10M sensor operates in the VIS/NIR range of 380 - 1000nm and provides spectral and spatial imaging with negligible sub-pixel distortions (smile, keystone).   The current sensor has an excellent spatial resolution of 1300 pixels, and a 2000 pixel version is to be released later this year. The high resolution does not compromise the imaging speed, which reaches 100 images/s, and even higher rate with spectral binning. The specifications meet the most demanding... (read more)

First Topcon Imaging TS

Topcon (The Netherlands) has unveiled the GPT-7000i, its first reflectorless total station incorporating digital imaging technology. The instrument is based on the standard GPT-7000, offering reflectorless measurements up to a 250m range. The implementation of imaging technology allows viewing of the telescope image on the instrument display screen, making easy pointing the telescope to the required object for measurement. Measured points and lines also appear on the real view of the area being measured. A 'Capture Reality' function allows storage of digital image along with measurement data. These features offer great advantages over traditional non-imaging surveying work. With the object... (read more)

China Imaging Satellite

In November last year China successfully put into orbit the third of its ZY-2 second transmitting-type remote sensing satellites. China launched the first and second ZY-2 satellites in September 2000 and October 2002, respectively, and these are still in orbit. Compared with these previous two satellites, the third has improved overall performance and technology. The satellite is mainly meant for land resource surveying, environmental supervision and protection, city planning, crop-yield assessment, disaster monitoring and space scientific experiment. The launch marked the 82nd time that Long March carriers have been used and the fortieth consecutive successful launch since China launched the... (read more)

Free Satellite Imaging Initiative

Satellite imaging provider DMCii has announced that it will provide free DMC constellation satellite imagery for scientists to support global environmental monitoring projects. Scientists are invited to compete for the opportunity to use the DMC multi-spectral data in their research projects. Applications will be judged on their contribution to international environmental research by an international panel of scientists chaired by Professor Alan O'Neil from the National Centre for Earth Observation.     DMC constellation data will be awarded to 5 UK and 5 Spanish science projects.  The provision of data will be coordinated by DMCii in the UK and Spanish...
