UAS-based Hyperspectral and LiDAR Sensing at the EORC

UAS-based Hyperspectral and LiDAR Sensing at the EORC

m

March 6, 2024

The UAS team from the Earth Observation Research Cluster was trained last week on its new sensor. The new addition is a compact radiometric VNIR hyperspectral imaging system for remote sensing, the Headwall Nano HP VNIR with onboard LiDAR, mounted to a Gremsy H16 V2 gimbal for the DJI M600.

In an exciting, intensive training session at the German distributor of the Headwall Nano HP VNIR, geo-konzept GmbH, the UAS team took the first flights and devoted themselves to processing the hyperspectral data.

We look forward to applying the sensor system, e.g., in detecting vegetation stressors in forests and agriculture, as in the BigData@Geo 2.0 project.
