The new VEGCAM-1 camera has been flight tested

The new VEGCAM-1 camera has been flight tested. It is a camera designed for the ATMOS-3 to analyze natural and agricultural vegetation. By default it works in three wide spectral bands: near infrared, red and green, compatible with SPOT. Depending on the flight altitude, it allows the individualized monitoring of each plant or wide farming areas. It permits the elaboration of different vegetation indexes to study their variability. Depending on the application, the camera can be configured with short band filters for very specific analysis of vegetation.
