Airborne Remote Sensing System
Resonon's airborne systems are complete hyperspectral solutions containing all hardware and software necessary to acquire georegistered hyperspectral data. Airborne systems can be mounted on both drones and piloted aerial platforms.
The Pika L is our most-popular VNIR spectral regime (400 - 1000 nm) airborne kit, with a payload weight of just 1.59 kg (3.5 lbs) and a compact size. The Pika IR-L and Pika IR-L+ NIR imagers (925 - 1700 nm) are high-resolution, compact, and have a payload weight of just 1.98 kg (4.4 lbs) making them a great choice for remote sensing in the NIR spectral regime. The Pika L, Pika IR-L, and Pika IR-L+ can fly on many drones, including the popular DJI M300.
Airborne systems can be fitted with any of Resonon's hyperspectral imaging cameras.
The GPS/IMU contains an RTK receiver for centimeter-scale positioning and increased orientation accuracy. An Emlid RTK Base Station and compatible radio are now available as optional components. Single- and dual-antenna GPS/IMU options are available.
