SPECIM Announces the Official Launch of AisaEAGLET

Compact Hyperspectral Imaging System for UAVs and Small Piloted Aircrafts

11 March 2009 SPECIM, Spectral Imaging, Ltd., a leading provider of Hyperspectral Imaging technology and solutions, announces the release of AisaEAGLET, a Hyperspectral Imaging airborne sensor specifically designed for small aircrafts and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). AisaEAGLET will be officially presented at the EARSEL Imaging Spectroscopy workshop in Tel-Aviv, Israel, 16-19 March 2009.

AisaEAGLET is an exceptionally compact and lightweight hyperspectral airborne sensor that acquires full, contiguous hyperspectral data in the VNIR region (400-1000 nm) with high spectral resolution and up to 100 push-broom images per second. AisaEAGLET also provides high spatial resolution with 1600 pixels across the swath and excellent sensitivity even in low light conditions. Its flexibility makes it a powerful remote sensing tool for a wide range of applications, from environmental monitoring and forestry to security and defense. AisaEAGLET is a full-featured airborne system, which consists of the hyperspectral sensor, GPS/INS sensor, data acquisition computer and flight operation software. Its modular design and low total mass of 10 kg of the complete system allow quick installation in various payload compartments.

“SPECIM is pricing the AisaEAGLET very attractively, particularly taking into consideration that it is a turnkey remote sensing system. SPECIM wants to promote hyperspectral imaging research activities, thus we have decided to launch a special price campaign for academic institutions, and offer them 20% discount on the AisaEAGLET cost. We hope this will lower the step for researchers to get access to their own hyperspectral imaging tool”, states Timo Hyvärinen, Managing Director of SPECIM.
