SAN DIEGO, April 22, 2013—Surface Optics Corporation (www.surfaceoptics.com) released its new airborne spectral imaging system, specifically designed for ease of installation in a UAV or small aircraft. The compact system delivers real-time, research-grade results covering the 400-1,000nm wavelength range with a 640 pixel-wide swath.
The ideal spectral imaging system for applications in precision agriculture, forestry, mining or oceanography, the SOC710GX offers high performance at an affordable price. The low noise, 12-bit camera used in the system supports rapid framing, wide dynamic range, high quantum efficiency and high resolution.
At 20 cm. in length and less than 2 Kilograms, the GX is designed to be compact. A single GigE connection eases integration and coupled to SOC’s Compact Data-Recorder, can collect data continuously for more than an hour.
